The high secure hospital near Retford, which is managed by Nottinghamshire Healthcare, has once again increased its rating from the previous year, reaching its best ever score.

Lee Brammer, head of security at the hospital said he was ‘very happy’ with the result.

“We actually gained top marks in three of the four audit functions, scoring 100 per cent, and 99 per cent in the fourth,” he said.

“This rating reflects the excellent team effort that goes into ensuring the safety of our patients, staff and the public.”

He added: “Security is paramount at the Hospital and by working to reduce risk, we can provide a safe, therapeutic environment which enhances the effective care, treatment and recovery of our patients.”

“The result demonstrates the professionalism and skills of the staff who work hard every day to make a difference to the lives of the patients at Rampton Hospital.”

Each year an action plan is developed to address areas of improvement and this year the Hospital will look to build on the excellent practice identified by the audit.
