RBCH wins prestigious CHKS Top Hospitals award

19 June

The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of the CHKS Top Hospitals for 2019, a prestigious award based on an analysis of data from all hospital trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Top Hospitals awards are data driven and take into consideration all trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The winners are decided by an analysis of over 20 performance indicators carried out by healthcare improvement specialists CHKS.

The data is regularly submitted by hospitals to NHS Digital to help track performance in a number of areas, including quality of care and patient safety. The performance indicators cover: safety, clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care. The indicators are revised annually to take into account any newly available performance information.

The Top Hospitals award is one of several awards that make up the CHKS Top Hospitals programme, including national awards for patient safety, quality of care and data quality.

Alyson O’Donnell, Medical Director at RBCH, said: “We’re really pleased to be in the top 25 of all trusts in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We’re proud to deliver patient centred care every day and would like to thank our dedicated team for putting quality at the heart of what they do.”

Moyra Amess, Director, Benchmarking, Assurance and Accreditation, Capita Healthcare Decisions, said: “The Top Hospital award recognises outstanding performance in those areas which we believe are critical to delivering good patient care. We are delighted that RBCH is one of our Top Hospitals 2019.”

The CHKS Top Hospitals programme awards were held in London on 12 June and hosted by ITV News Medical Correspondent Sue Saville.
