Spire Hull & East Riding Hospital

Grading:  - Requires Improvement

Spire Hull and East Riding Hospital is operated by Classic Hospitals Limited. Facilities at the hospital site include four operating theatres, a three bedded critical care unit and the hospital is registered with CQC for 56 beds. There are also x-ray, outpatient and diagnostic facilities. We inspected this hospital as part of our independent hospital inspection programme. The inspection was conducted using the Care Quality Commission’s comprehensive inspection methodology. It was a routine planned inspection. We inspected the following five core services at the hospital: medicine, surgery, critical care, children and young people and outpatient and diagnostic imaging. We carried out the announced part of the inspection on the 14, 15, 16 September 2015 along with an unannounced visit to the hospital on 23 September 2015. Overall we rated children and young people's services, surgery and critical care as requires improvement and outpatient and diagnostic imaging services as good. We inspected but did not rate medical care. This was because: we did not have suficient evidence, the small size of the service and, most evidence relating to medical inpatient services was included within the surgical report as these were co-located within the surgical ward area.
