In fact the hospital received a rating of “Good” for all 5 of the categories – Safe; Effective; Caring; Responsive and Well Led. Three core areas were subject to the inspection: Surgery, Outpatients and Diagnostic Imaging. The full report can be read here: CQC Full Report for New Victoria Hospital.
The inspectors identified one area of outstanding practice with one of our surgeons who uses the UroLift System – a ground-breaking prostate surgery. Read more about this here: UroLift.
There were also some areas identified where the hospital can do even better and we are already working towards these.
