Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

5th July 2016
Grading Explained: Requires Improvement

The community health inpatient services in Bradford are provided in three community hospitals; these are Westwood Park, Eccleshill and Westbourne Green. The community hospitals form part of the elderly care directorate and provide a less acute environment. These services are aimed at avoiding the need for patients to be admitted to an acute hospital for rehabilitation and restoring functional abilities following an acute hospital stay.

At the time of this inspection Eccleshill was temporarily closed. At the previous inspection in October 2014, Westbourne Green had been closed; as this was now open we visited this hospital and Westwood Park Community Hospital as part of this follow up inspection.

We carried out a follow up inspection of the trust between 11 – 14 January 2016 in response to the previous inspection as part of our comprehensive inspection programme in October 2014. We also undertook an unannounced inspection on 26 January 2016 to follow up on concerns identified during the announced visit.

We inspected all eight core services at Bradford Royal Infirmary (BRI), although not all domains within each service. We also inspected medical services and outpatients at St Luke’s Hospital. We inspected the community health inpatient services at Westbourne Green and Westwood Park Community Hospital.
