Ben Gummer, Minister for Care Quality, has congratulated staff at Wexham Park Hospital today, for being rated as 'good' by the CQC in their latest inspection report.
The latest inspection follows the Slough-based hospital being acquired by Frimley Park Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in October 2014, whilst the hospital was under special measures.
In this latest inspection, England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals Sir Mike Richards has rated the services provided by Wexham Park as ‘Good’ – describing it as “undoubtedly the most impressive example of improvement since our new approach to inspection started in September 2013.”
The hospital’s emergency service and critical care service have been rated Outstanding, with the six other core services rated as Good.
In response to this report, Ben Gummer said:
I want to congratulate staff at Wexham Park Hospital for their hard work. With the hospital’s recent history in mind, this is a clear demonstration of the NHS sharing best practice to deliver wider, significant improvements in care.
“There is still work to be done, but I hope other Trusts will look to Wexham Park as a model for what can be achieved.
