    The Model Hospital

    Lots of people ask me what is the role of the Countess of Chester Hospitals chief executive. For me the answer is pretty straightforward…

    ….and that is to work every day to make sure the care experience of everyone who comes to our hospitals is a safe and as positive as possible.

    CQC Inspection ‘specialist advisor’ Sandra Flynn gives a flavour of how we can get ready to showcase what we do well

    By the end of March 2016, every hospital will have been inspected under the new model of inspection adopted by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Our patient safety team is working closely with staff across the trust to get the Countess ready for the visit. I’m also hoping that I can add value to the preparations since securing a secondment to the CQC in March 2014. To date I have been released for a week at a time from my clinical duties at the Countess to take part in four CQC inspections in the Northwest and Midland region.
