Top score for hospital

SPALDING’S Johnson Community Hospital has been awarded the highest ratings for food, environment, privacy and dignity for the second time running.

The annual Patient Environment Action Team assessments are carried out by nurses, dieticians, patients and public members for hospitals with more than ten beds.

Simon Temple, operational lead for Lincolnshire Community Health Services, said: “Everyone at the hospital has worked really hard to ensure the standards met the requirements for the highest rating for a second year running. We aim to make our patients’ stay as comfortable as possible so it is great to be recognised by The National Patient Safety Agency as having high standards.”
