St Luke's Hospital

Grading:  - Requires Improvement

At the time of the inspection the wards at St Luke’s had recently undergone a restructure with services from Eccleshill Community Hospital being moved to St Luke’s. Eccleshill Community Hospital had moved to ward F5, and stroke and neurology rehabilitation had moved from ward F5 to F3. The hospital had approximately 63 beds.

The health of people in Bradford is generally worse than the England average. Deprivation is higher than average and around 23.9% (29,225) of children live in poverty. Life expectancy for both women and men is lower than the England average. The Bradford area has a higher than average proportion of the population who are under 16 years old. The black, asian and minority ethnic (BAME) population is higher than the England average, with 32.7% BAME residents compared to an England average of 14.6%.

We carried out a follow-up inspection of the trust on 11-13 January 2016 in response to a previous inspection conducted as part of our comprehensive inspection programme of the Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in October 2014.
