How we are doing

We care about quality and safety and are committed to being open and transparent with our patients and local community about how we are doing. Our performance can be measured through a variety of indicators, from infection and mortality rates to inspection results, patient feedback and the numbers of falls and pressure ulcers on our wards.

You can also look at our board papers for monthly updates on our performance and read about our latest award wins.
