Medway Maritime Hospital

11th July 2022
Grading Explained: Requires Improvement

Inspection visit took place on February 15&16.

This was a focused inspection of Medway Maritime Hospital’s urgent and emergency care services, carried out as part of a pilot approach of the urgent and emergency care pathway across Kent and Medway to assess how patient risks were being managed across health and social care services during increased and extreme capacity pressures. 

Although the hospital previously had an inadequate rating for this service, the inspection was not in response to concerns. The CQC notes that that it reviewed actions it asked the Trust to take from its last inspection and that the Trust had made significant improvements. The rating of this service went up to good, but the overall rating for the hospital is requires improvement.
