In April and May 2021 the Care Quality Commission visited Medway Maritime Hospital to carry out inspections of Medical and Older People’s services, and Children and Young People’s services. They also reviewed the leadership of the Trust.

On 30 July the findings of the inspections were published in a report [click here to read the report]. Welcoming the report, the Trust’s Chief Executive Dr George Findlay said: “Our staff have worked incredibly hard throughout the pandemic to deliver safe and compassionate care to our community, and we are pleased that the CQC has recognised some of the improvements the Trust has made since its last inspection. 

“We know we still have more to do to consistently deliver the safe, high quality care that our patients expect and we are working closely with clinicians to implement our improvement plan and achieve this aim.”

As part of the inspections, the CQC team also assessed Infection Prevention and Control at the Trust. A report produced following this visit was published on 1 July 2021 [click here to read the report].
