CQC Inspection 2019
CQC inspectors visited Parkside Private Hospital, Cancer Centre London and Parkside Hospital at Putney between September and December 2019. The report was published on 26 March 2020.
Overall, the rating for Parkside Hospital was Good.
Who are the CQC?
They are the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. They make sure health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care.
What did they do?
The inspection team inspected the core services of medicine, surgery and outpatients and diagnostic imaging services. They did not inspect end of life care as a separate core service as it accounted for less than 10% of the services provided at the hospital. Complex diagnostic investigations such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerised tomography (CT) scans were provided by the hospital.
All three facilities were rated ‘Good’ across all five assessment criteria – for being caring, well-led, responsive to people’s needs, being safe and effective.
The report is complimentary and a reflection of the work, dedication and care with which staff across the sites treat their patients. The CQC report states: “Staff worked hard to make the patient experience as pleasant as possible. Staff recognised and responded to the holistic needs of patients from their first referral before admission to checks on their wellbeing after they were discharged from the hospital”.
What happens next?
We are very proud of this result and all the hard work put in by our staff in order to provide first class care to our patients and will continue to strive for an overall rating of outstanding.
