In its inspection report, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the service ‘good’ across all five categories, safe, effective, caring, well-led and responsive.

The report said: “The range of therapies and activities available to patients was extensive and of high quality.

“Leaders were strong, consistent, and well respected by the staff and patients we spoke with. We saw evidence that managers were implementing the information and action plans, that they had shared with us through the provider engagement meetings, into the culture and practice at the hospital.”

Palmer Chinosengwa, hospital director, said: “We are delighted to have been rated ‘good’ overall by the CQC.

“My team works incredibly hard to ensure that the best care is provided to our patients and we aim to help them learn skills which are necessary for community living.
