During a routine inspection

We spoke with three people that were using the service at the time of our inspection. All three were, or had been, inpatients that had undergone surgery at the hospital. All three said they had received a thorough pre-admission assessment, in which they were asked about any special dietary needs and requirements. They said that the food was excellent. They said they had been given good information about the surgical procedure they were due to undergo and had given consent accordingly. All three people said they would recommend the hospital.

Of those cases we reviewed, we found that good care and treatment was provided to people, which included a thorough pre-admission assessment and risk assessments. We found that people�s nutritional and dietary requirements were well catered for and that agreements with other providers were properly monitored, with the exception of a critical care transfer agreement with the local NHS trust. In respect of contracted staff, we found that training and appraisal was up to date but for those doctors for whom practising privileges were awarded we had serious concerns about the provider�s management of this process and their failure to ensure that consultants had current indemnity, appraisal and up-to-date immune status.
