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.
