Top Hospital Scores for Wolverhampton

Replacement photo Karen PattisonIn a recent survey, Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital has come top in several areas, compared with 30 other hospitals nationally in the Nuffield Health group.  When asked at the end of their treatment, “How likely is it that you would recommend this service to friends and family?” an impressive 100% of all the Wolverhampton patients surveyed said yes they would. The figures are from a patient satisfaction report for June 2016.

Overall satisfaction for the private hospital in Tettenhall was 97% which is a percentage point higher than the average across the whole group. Top scores by specialty were for cosmetic surgery, ear, nose & throat medicine, endoscopy and gynaecology – all at 100%. Close behind were ophthalmology and orthopaedics at 98%. Across the board, there were extremely high  rankings. Consultants and physiotherapists scored 100, whilst nurses, pharmacy and housekeepers were at 99. Room cleanliness and meeting dietary requirements were also high at 99.   

Patients said the hospital experience was very welcoming on arrival, with calls answered in a friendly manner and call buttons from the rooms answered in good time. Comments included “Absolutely perfect treatment in every way from admission to discharge”, “All staff ticked all the boxes” and “First class in every way”.

Hospital Director, Karen Pattison, is delighted with these results which are consistent with several other patient surveys, commenting, “Whilst we have been a top performing hospital for the last two years in the NHS Partners Network, recommendations to friends and family represent a real ‘acid test’ for quality of care experience. It all comes down to strong teamwork. Feedback from patients is extremely valuable in pinpointing and supporting continued improvements in quality at Nuffield Health Wolverhampton Hospital.”
