North Cumbria hospitals meeting standards

A health watchdog says north Cumbria’s hospitals are meeting all of the standards expected of them.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has today published its first annual analysis of trusts nationally.

It assessed performance and risk at each hospital.

The results, published on its website, reveal that both Carlisle’s Cumberland Infirmary and Whitehaven’s West Cumberland Hospital are meeting five key standards required of them by law.

These are: treating people with respect and involving them in their care; providing care, treatment and support which meets people’s needs; caring for people safely and protecting them from harm; staffing and management.

Results are based on most recent inspections.
