Patient Care

Both the Hospital Director and Matron are extremely focussed on ensuring that your care and comfort remains the highest priority for the consultants and nursing staff.  They are committed to maintaining the hospital’s extremely low infection rate record and there have been no cases of hospital acquired MRSA. All healthcare professionals undergo continuous professional development to ensure patients are treated in a safe environment and the fact we nurse patients in individual rooms enhances our ability to prevent the spread of infection. 

The hospital provides 24hr clinical care through their resident RMO’s (resident medical officers) and their commitment to these standards has been recognised through independent external audits by the CQC (Care Quality Commission)
