Community sites welcome checks

  • Comment
Most community hospital staff believe the care they give should be assessed in the same manner as in the rest of the NHS, an NT survey suggests.

A poll of 631 nurses and therapists found 97% thought it was important to have a system of performance monitoring.

The poll follows research by the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement, as part of its Productive Community Hospitals programme, which suggested checks in community hospitals were limited.

The poll also found three-quarters of staff believed that more support staff should be employed, to free up time for direct patient care.

The institute will be presenting its programme in April at the Naidex disability and rehabilitation conference in Birmingham.
