During a routine inspection

Spire Nottingham Hospital is operated by Spire Healthcare Limited. The hospital opened on 29 April 2017. It is a new purpose built independent healthcare hospital in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire. Spire Nottingham Hospital is situated south of Nottingham city centre; it opened almost two years after work started on the project. A full project team including engineering, pharmacy, pathology, IT, logistics, purchasing, recruitment and training supported the Senior Management Team in getting the hospital ready for opening. A majority of the consultants who have practising privileges at the hospital are from the local NHS hospital trust. The hospital’s main specialties are orthopaedics, spinal surgery, urology, gynaecology, general surgery, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, ENT, oral surgery, gastroenterology and breast surgery. Spire Nottingham Hospital is the only hospital in the region with a hybrid theatre.

The hospital primarily serves the communities of the Nottinghamshire, Lincoln and North Leicestershire areas. It also accepts patient referrals from outside these areas.

Services are provided to NHS patients, and self-funded patients who may be insured or who self-pay to cover the costs of their treatment.

The hospital currently provides services to adults only. It stopped providing children’s and young people’s services in October 2017.It offers outpatient, day case and inpatient services for a range of specialities including orthopaedics, ophthalmology, gynaecology, urology, ear, cosmetic and general surgery. Additional services offered on an outpatient basis include rheumatology, dermatology and cardiology. These services are supported by on-site physiotherapy and diagnostic imaging departments.

The hospital has been registered with the CQC to carry out the following regulated activities since April 2017:

  • Surgical Procedures

  • Treatment of disease, disorder or injury

  • Diagnostic and screening services

  • Services in slimming clinics

  • Family Planning Services

The hospital has had a registered manager and a designated controlled drugs accountable officer (CDAO) in post since registration in April 2017. Spire Healthcare Limited has a nominated individual.

This was the hospital’s first inspection since opening. There were no special reviews or investigations of the hospital ongoing by the CQC at any time during the nine months since opening.
