FOR the seventh successive year South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) has been named as a ‘Top 40 Hospital’.

CHKS, a leading provider of healthcare intelligence has identified the SWFT as one of the top performing trusts in the UK following analysis of publicly available data. Organisations are evaluated by looking at 22 indicators of clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care.

CHKS state that top hospitals perform better, a claim supported by statistics for a number of key indicators such as length of hospital stay and rates of mortality and emergency readmission to hospital.

Chief Executive Glen Burley said: “We’re very pleased to be identified as a “Top 40 hospital”. In determining the best performing trusts CHKS use a wide range of data and this shows the result of all the hard work carried out by our staff to deliver safe, effective, compassionate care.

“I feel it is important to note that in addition to the Trust’s acute hospitals, our successful integration with community services is crucial to our performance. This whole system approach relies on our close working relationship with local GPs and health and social care partner organisations. Improving the health and well-being of the local community is very much a team effort.”

This fantastic achievement is further evidence of the Trust’s status as one of the country’s best healthcare providers. This year their NHS Staff Survey results placed them in the top 20% nationally and Warwick Hospital’s Accident and Emergency department was rated as one of the top five performing in an NHS England report.
