Nuffield Health Hospital Bournemouth has passed a spot check inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The private hospital, based on Lansdowne Road, received an unannounced visit from the CQC. The unexpected inspection was followed by a report stating all essential standards of quality and safety investigated during the assessment were being met.

The CQC visit to Nuffield Health Bournemouth came as part of a routine schedule of hospital inspections taking place across the country.

During the visit, the CQC spoke with a range of people and reported patients received treatment and care from well-trained, polite and knowledgeable staff in clean, comfortable and safe surroundings.

The report found hospital staff were focussed on patient comfort and great care was taken to respect privacy and dignity. Patients told inspectors they received courteous, professional advice before, during and after treatments and that choices and options were offered at all stages in their care.

Hospital Director David McNair commented: “I am extremely proud that the everyday work undertaken by our hospital staff has been found to be at, or above, the high standards expected by the CQC.

“I believe much of this success is owing to the excellent leadership of our clinical teams by our Matron, Anne Richardson, as well as the guidance provided by our Medical Advisory Committee which is chaired by consultant Ray McCrudden” he said.
