County’s hospitals praised

NOTTINGHAMSHIRE hospitals have been praised for the quality of the care they provide patients.

The hospitals were inspected by the Care Quality Commission – the independent regulator of health and social care in England.

Inspectors watched how people were being cared for, interviewed staff, talked to patients and looked at the records of people who use services.

A range of patient standards were checked during the review, such as being treated with respect, being given the right information about their care and that staff had the proper training to care for patients.

The inspection did not include the City Hospital Campus. Inspectors found that the Queen’s Medical Centre was meeting all essential standards of quality and safety.
