There is an active Quality programme in place across all services provided by Nuffield Health and this is audited and the outcomes are monitored at every level of the organisation. Fundamentally this means that when things do not go to plan we will put them right and learn the lessons to improve future services.

The Nuffield Health Board publishes an industry-leading governance report which includes the outcomes of the various elements of the safety and quality programme.

All our hospitals are inspected by independent healthcare regulators to ensure they meet the fundamental standard of quality and safety as determined by the regulating body of each country. The table below details the rating of our hospitals according to the findings of the Care Quality Commission, Health Inspectorate Scotland (HIS) and Health Inspectorate Wales (HIW).
