Dorset County Hospital Wins Top Award

Top Hospitals QC award may 2013

9:06am 3rd May 2013

Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has won the CHKS Top Hospitals Quality Care award for 2013.

At an awards ceremony at the Middle Temple Hall,  London earlier this week they beat off challenges from four other shortlisted Trusts, including, in the South West, Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.

All the country's acute NHS Trusts are marked, based on 12 criteria, including mortality levels, lengths of stay in hospital, the emergency re-admission rates and how quickly cancer patients are seen.

In the picture Dorset County Hospital Director of Nursing, Alison Tong, is pictured receiving the award on behalf of the hospital from CHKS Managing Director Jason Harries.
