University Hospital

Grading:  - Requires Improvement

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust is one of the UK’s largest trusts and serves a population of about 1,000,000 across Coventry, Warwickshire and beyond. Inpatient and outpatient services are provided from two hospital sites, University Hospital at Coventry and Hospital of St Cross, at Rugby. In total, the trust has 1,250 beds and provides both elective and emergency care. A major trauma centre, University Hospital specialises in cardiology, neurosurgery, stroke, joint replacements, in vitro fertilisation and maternal health, diabetes, cancer care and kidney transplants.

During this inspection we only inspected outpatient and diagnostic imaging services provided by University Hospital. This was an unannounced follow up inspection due to the outpatient and diagnostic imaging service being rated ‘inadequate’ for safe in our March 2015 comprehensive inspection.

We did not inspect any other services provided by the trust. Therefore, the overall rating for University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust remains as requires improvement, as per the March 2015 inspection.
