Quality Assurance

At the Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth we have a robust governance framework that is committed to maintaining the hospital’s high standards. In ‘High Quality Care for All’ Lord Darzi explained that quality exists in three domains: patient safety, effectiveness of care and patient experience. At our hospital we would like to echo this statement by aiming to reduce avoidable accidents, continuing to maintain our low infection rates (an exemplary performance), and monitor patient reported outcomes and continue to analyse patient satisfaction surveys in terms of compassion, dignity and respect in a clean, safe and well managed environment.
