This describes how we care for and treat our patients and their families.

We are delighted that our hospital has once again been recognised as the top performing hospitalin the country in the Care Quality Commission National Inpatient Survey 2013 for 'overall patient care' - the 7th time in 8 years. It directly illustrates our mission and vision of patient care, as it is our patients scoring this survey.

This is a national survey and every credit must go to all our staff and volunteers for their hard work and dedication to maintaining such high standards.
