Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital became a NHS Foundation Trust in December 2009. This means we have more choice and flexibility to make decisions about the current and future services we provide to meet the needs of our patients.
"To be the premier integrated cardiothoracic healthcare organisation in the country"
“Excellent, Compassionate and Safe care for every patient, every day”
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 a top performer in the 2012 Care Quality Commission National Inpatient Survey for 'overall patient care'. 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.
This success was further reinforced by the results of the 2011 Patient Environment Action Team (PEAT) assessment. LHCH was rated as "Excellent" for Environment, "Excellent" for Food and "Excellent" for Privacy and Dignity.
Your experience of our hospital and services is very important to us and we promise to deliver excellent, compassionate and safe care to every patient, every day. We know patients want to come into a clean hospital and feel safe and we have a duty to our patients to ensure that this happens. We hope you will trust us and choose us.
