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.

They found medicine good in all five of the key questions we always ask of every service and provider relating to safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led. Outpatients and diagnostic imaging services was rated good in the four key questions relating to safe, caring, responsive and well led. They inspected but did not rate the key question of effective in outpatient and diagnostic imaging services. They found surgery services were good in four of the key questions of safe, effective, caring and responsive, but requires improvement in well led.

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. We are addressing the areas that need improvement with immediate effect and will continue to strive for an overall rating of outstanding.
