Chief Executive of New Victoria Hospital, Graham Ball said “We are extremely pleased to achieve a rating of "Good" in all five categories of our recent CQC inspection. New Victoria Hospital is committed to the provision of exceptional standards of care and service to its patients, whose individual needs and safety are our priority at all times. I am very proud of the result and of our staff, especially in light of having been in the throes of our extensive expansion at the hospital during the time the inspection took place."
Graham Ball added "The inspectors identified some areas where the hospital can do even better, some of which we were already aware of and working on. Once these improvements are in place we look forward to aiming for an Outstanding on our next inspection."
