You may have read about the recent CQC report following a routine inspection of the hospital more than six months ago.

At King Edward Vii’s Hospital, our team of outstanding clinicians, alongside a highly committed nursing team and other clinical staff, are dedicated to providing the highest standards of personalised care to our patients.

We noted that the Commission rated our work as caring, effective and responsive.

The Commission identified a number of governance processes and other procedures which required attention.  Where possible, these were rectified immediately and a rigorous plan of action will ensure the others are rapidly and fully addressed.

Nothing is more important to us than ensuring our patients receive the best treatment and care at all times.

Patients who have further questions about the report should not hesitate to discuss them with the Consultant responsible for their care.

Chief Executive.
