The Care Quality Commission (CQC) paid a visit to the maternity and elderly wards at the hospital in Homerton Row, Homerton on February 6. They found that “patients received care that met their needs and was delivered in a respectful manner”.

The CQC assessed the wards in six areas. This included respecting and involving people who use services, care and welfare of people who use services, safeguarding people who use services from abuse, staffing, supporting workers and assessing and monitoring the quality of service

provision.

Chief nurse Charlie Sheldon, said: “We welcome every inspection of our services. The regulator can point out any areas where we can improve the care we deliver to patients, and highlight where we are getting things right.

“These inspections are also important in assuring our local community that Homerton is providing care to the highest standard. I am pleased that the report is overwhelmingly positive and people can be confident that Homerton is independently recognised as providing a high quality service to our patients.”
