Exeter Medical Rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission.

Exeter Medical is delighted that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has rated it as Outstanding following its latest inspection.

The report, published on 10th July 2019, rated Exeter Medical as ‘Outstanding` in the domains of responsive and well-led and GOOD in the domains of safe, effective and caring, giving an overall rating of Outstanding.

The report identified that Exeter Medical was well organised to deliver services to meet patients’ needs and had a culture of high-quality sustainable care.  The report also highlighted that staff were patient, kind and considerate and that patients had confidence in the clinicians who provided their treatment.

The CQC also praised Exeter Medical for its outstanding engagement with the local charity, in particular highlighting its annual charity ‘mole check’ event where members of the local community can have full mole checks in exchange for a minimum £10 cancer charity donation.

Hospital Director Jeanette Mercer said: "I am absolutely delighted with the result of our recent CQC inspection. The staff and consultants have worked hard collectively since the last inspection in July 2018 and in conjunction with the expertise injected following the takeover by Ramsay Health Care UK, has brought about this well-deserved result of an `Outstanding ` rating”.

Jasek Szymanski, Head of Clinical Services said: “To achieve Outstanding is a reflection of the strength and dedication of the team and consultants at Exeter Medical. It is fantastic to achieve three ratings of `Good` practice with a compliment of outstanding in two of our key areas. This showcases the excellent services and clinical outcomes we offer to the local healthcare community.’’
