CQC rates independent Rochdale hospital as Outstanding
The CQC has found the care provided by Rochdale Ophthalmology Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service to be Outstanding.
Stefan Verstraelen, CQC Hospital Inspection Manager for the North, said:
“It is wonderful to see a specialist service like Rochdale Ophthalmology Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service consistently ensuring staff were motivated in going the extra mile with people and receiving care which exceeded their expectations."
"The relationships between people who used the service and staff was strong and seen as a partnership and for that we gave the service an outstanding rating."
“Inspectors found the management of the services was outstanding and assured the delivery of high-quality person-centred care. This included developing two patient forums; one for age-related macular degeneration patients and the other for Glaucoma patients. These forums were open to any patient, or relative of a patient, with AMD or Glaucoma to discuss any concerns or anxieties they may have."
“The team should all be extremely proud of the work they do. I congratulate the staff at Rochdale Ophthalmology Clinical Assessment and Treatment Service for achieving our highest rating.”
