The Hospital Receives ‘Good’ Across All Areas, In a Recent CQC Report

The services provided by Fairfield Independent Hospital have been rated 'Good' across all areas by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The CQC is the organisation responsible for ensuring that health and social care services in England – including hospitals, care homes, dental practices and GP surgeries – provide safe and high-quality care.

The CQC report published 25th January 2017 is based on a combination of its inspection findings and information gathered from a number of sources including information provided by patients, the public, staff and other organisations.

Chair of Trustees John Watts said: “This report highlights all the hard work of our staff to ensure that our services are patient-centred”. The Hospital’s Executive Team and the Board of Trustees were particularly pleased with the comment that the ‘staff were caring, compassionate and treated the patients with dignity and respect’.

Chief Executive Cheryl Nolan said: “We welcomed the CQC’s scrutiny of our services and we are delighted that they have recognised the many good areas of work which takes place at Fairfield Independent Hospital. I am also pleased that our services were consistently acknowledged as being both caring and well-led. Patients interviewed during the inspection spoke positively about their care saying that our staff were courteous and compassionate. All credit goes to our staff and I would like to thank them for their continued commitment and professionalism”.
