Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust is included in the next 19 acute and specialist trusts that will be inspected as part of the CQC's new hospital inspection programme under the direction of the new Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Sir Mike Richards.
Dr Sonia Swart, Chief Executive of NGH, said 'We welcome the opportunities that the CQC inspection will give us to make further improvements to the services we provide. Feedback from our patients and our staff, along with our own internal inspection processes, scrutiny and constructive challenge from regulators enables us to provide even better care for our patients.
'We know there are areas where we need to take action to ensure our services are of a consistently high quality and there is an enormous amount of work already underway. The CQC inspection will complement this work and help us to improve patient care even further.' NGH News
