Woodland Hospital awarded “GOOD” by the Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The UK’s largest Healthcare regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC) visited the Woodland Hospital (part of Ramsay Healthcare) on Wednesday 24th October and Thursday 25th October to carry out a full unannounced inspection. As a conclusion of their 2-day visit, they have awarded the Hospital with an overall rating of “Good” across all but one criteria – a huge achievement.

David Munt, Hospital Director said “ I am delighted with the result of our recent CQC inspection. Woodland staff and Consultants have worked hard collectively since the last inspection in March 2016 to move from a rating of Requires Improvement to Good, and the report outlines this. Our focus now is to move confidently towards an ‘Outstanding’ rating.”

Shaun Thompstone, Head of Clinical Services (Matron) added “This inspection came at the right time for the Hospital. We have just completed our latest development which included a 4th theatre, additional treatments rooms, consulting rooms, day case bays, inpatient beds , static MRI Scanner and a new Physiotherapy gym. To be awarded an improved rating of “Good” showcases the excellent services and clinical outcomes we offer to the local healthcare community. The CQC recognised the huge amount of progress we have made, as a team, in the journey to provide excellent standards of care to our patients. A huge thank you to our dedicated staff and Consultants who have been on the journey with us."
