Worthing Hospital given clean bill of health

First published in News

A hospital has been given a clean bill of health following a visit from inspectors.
 

The team from the Care Quality Commission carried out the unannounced check at Worthing Hospital in December.
 

They found the hospital was meeting all five standards relating to the care and treatment of patients.
 

This included respecting and involving people using its services, their care and welfare, cleanliness and infection control and staffing levels.
 

Inspectors checked the hospital's accident and emergency department, the children's ward and two adult inpatient wards.
 

The hospital is run by Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which is also responsible for St Richard's in Chichester and Southlands in Shoreham.
 

Trust chief executive Marianne Griffiths said: “This report sends a clear message that staff at Worthing Hospital are skilled, caring, committed, and take a real pride in the work they do.
 

“Of course we cannot get everything right, every time, but the inspectors found that our staff were well motivated and well informed.”
 

Southlands and St Richard's also received good reports following inspections last year.

Poor southlands hospital is quietly getting closed down,all impatients have gone.Out patients is getting cut with the once popular and professional Warren Browne unit closed down and services moved to Worthing.I went for a sleep ECG and because it was the only department left in that part of the hospital the heating was off it was freezing.But I must say ive no complaints about Worthing hospital.The facilities at the RSCH in brighton are dated waiting for funding which is being held back until near an election I suggest the un-used hospital at southlands should be used but I suppose even though just a couple of miles away its in a different county and hospital trust.
