Kettering General Hospital

15th April 2020
Grading Explained: Requires Improvement

The Inspection visit took place on 3 February 2020. 


We carried out an unannounced focused inspection of the emergency department at Kettering General Hospital on 3 February 2020, in response to concerning information we had received in relation to care of patients in this department. 


We did not inspect any other core service or wards at this hospital, however we did visit the winter pressure operations centre to discuss patient flow from the emergency department. 


During this inspection we inspected using our focused inspection methodology. Because we issued requirement notices, we opted to rate the safe, responsive and well-led domains as requires improvement respectively.
