Norfolk: Hospital gets all clear
One of Norfolk's biggest hospitals has been given the all clear for its standards of care.
A report published today by the Care Quality Commission has said the James Paget University Hospital is now fully compliant on all the care standards.
The latest CQC inspection took place on July 30 and looked at standards of record keeping. Today’s report shows the hospital trust is compliant on that standard.
The CQC report states: “People’s personal records, including medical records were accurate and fit for purpose…we found the format of the records and the way in which they had been completed had improved significantly.”
Chief Executive David Hill said: “Our staff should be really proud of what they have achieved. It hasn’t been easy but without their dedication to our patients, these improvements would not have been possible.”
Chairman David Wright said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank our staff for their commitment to getting it right for our patients. It’s been a difficult time for the hospital and the staff and I am delighted that our patients and public can be assured we do meet the standards expected of us.”
Brandon Lewis, MP for Great Yarmouth, said: "This is very welcome news for the James Paget. The staff and new senior management team have turned things around recently and patients and the public should be reassured that real progress has been made. The hospital now needs to continue making good progress and to keep achieving success."
Mr Hugh Sturzaker, Lead Governor of the Governors Council, which represents the interests of the local public and patients, said: “On behalf of the Governors and the public I would like to congratulate all the staff on the great effort and dedication that they have put into turning the hospital around and moving it towards being yet again one of the best hospitals in the country.”
