Harrogate District Hospital

3rd August 2016
Grading Explained: Good

Overall, we rated Harrogate District Hospital as good. The majority of services were rated as good across the hospital, with some areas rated as outstanding. However, further work was needed at the hospital to develop the children’s and young people’s services, the trust were aware of this and new leadership had been introduced.

There was no strategic plan in place for end of life care, although in its absence the trust had developed a care of the dying adult and bereavement policy. The service had a leadership structure split between two directorates, which the trust had recognised could be more efective and was being reviewed.

We rated caring as outstanding, effective, responsive and well-led as good; and safe was rated as requires improvement. We rated critical care and outpatients and diagnostic imaging as outstanding, urgent and emergency services, medical care, surgery, maternity and gynaecology and end of life as good. We rated services for children and young people as requires improvement.
