Patient inspectors praise treatment centre
A treatment centre has received a glowing report from a team of patients.
Six people underwent special training to carry out an assessment of the centre, run by CareUK, at King George Hospital, in Goodmayes.
They sampled the centre’s food and talked to patients about their care in June and published a report on September 18.
The centre scored 99 per cent for cleanliness, 94 per cent for condition, appearance and maintenance, 91 per cent for privacy, dignity and wellbeing and 87 per cent for food.
Veronica Pinder, the treatment centre’s infection prevention and control lead, said: “We take hygiene and infection control very seriously and have never had a case of MRSA or C-difficile.”
Paul Attwal, hospital director at North East London NHS Treatment Centre, said: “I am very proud of my team for delivering such high standards day after day.”
The team was set up after the government called for patient-led inspections of hospitals.
