One Ashford Hospital, Kent’s newest healthcare provider, is delighted to have been rated ‘good’, following its first inspection from the Care Quality Commission.
The inspection took place in June 2017, and rated the hospital ‘good’ overall and good in all five main assessment criteria, which judged it to be safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
The regulator’s report highlighted particular examples of good practice, such as how staff helped create the hospital’s values and staff were engaged with the vision and values, and incorporated the values into their day-to-day work.
The CQC report also noted how staff in all departments treated patients with kindness and compassion, and how in outpatients and diagnostic imaging, patients could access care and treatment promptly at a time that suited them.
One Ashford Hospital was the first hospital in the One Healthcare group and since its launch in March 2016, has worked closely with the NHS to reduce waiting times, as well as with insured patients and those who choose to pay for their own care.
One Ashford is registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to deliver the regulated activities of treatment of disease, disorder or injury, surgical procedures, diagnostic and screening procedures. We are required to comply with the high standards they set for quality and safety in hospitals.
