Bridgnorth’s MP Philip Dunne has welcomed ‘Good’ ratings from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for Bridgnorth Community Hospital and Innage Grange Care Home.
The CQC praised Bridgnorth Community Hospital’s MLU for a 'home-from-home' atmosphere for women who will be at low risk of complications during labour. Both Innage Grange Care Home and Bridgnorth Community Hospital were rated ‘Good’ in all five areas of review: safe, effective, caring, responsive, and well-led. Innage Grange received a comprehensive review in July, and Bridgnorth Community Hospital was visited for inspection in November 2016.
Mr Dunne said: “I welcome the ‘Good’ ratings from the Care Quality Commission for both Bridgnorth Community Hospital and Innage Grange Care Home, showing the quality of healthcare in Bridgnorth. It is important these standards are maintained, and patients continue to be well served.
The CQC’s positive comments about Bridgnorth Hospital’s MLU will further strengthen the argument for a return of services as soon as possible, now that SaTH have managed to recruit the additional midwives they were seeking
