Wellesley's local NHS service Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as ‘good’ in its first ever full inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

In November and December 2018 inspectors visited the maternity and surgical services at the Trust’s three main hospitals – Frimley Park Hospital near Camberley, Wexham Park Hospital in Slough and Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot – and its community inpatient service at Fleet Hospital.

They concluded that the standard of care at Wellesley's local hospital, Frimley Park, was ‘outstanding,’ while Wexham Park, Heatherwood and community inpatient services were ‘good’.

A well-led and use of resources review were also rated as ‘good’, giving the Trust an overall ‘good’ rating.

Frimley Health chief executive Neil Dardis said: “I am consistently humbled by the dedication and care our staff provide for our patients.

They have been on an incredible journey since the creation of Frimley Health in 2014 - driving improvements in quality and implementing a major capital development programme, whilst delivering some of the best performance standards in the country and transforming models of care by integrating services with our partners, and at a time when the NHS is facing many challenges.

Our ambition is to seek improvement wherever possible for the benefit of our patients, staff and communities and I welcome the insight provided by the inspection team, which aligns well with our own plans for the future."
