Top 40 Hospital award

The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital has today been named one of the top 40 hospitals in the country for the fourth year running, according to hospital analysts CHKS.

CHKS is an international company specialising in measuring healthcare performance and their study assessed a total of 17 areas including death rates, emergency readmission rates, day case operation rates, MRSA rates, and a range of patient surveys.  

Chief executive Paul Forden said: “Top hospitals give their patients consistently good healthcare and that's what makes it so pleasing to see we are in the Top 40 hospitals in the UK for the fourth year running. We have high calibre staff delivering quality services and this award reflects their skill and dedication.”

Chief executive of CHKS International Graham Harries said: “To be awarded CHKS 40 Top Hospital status, each hospital has to achieve a high level of performance across all the indicators. This demonstrates to local residents that their hospitals are well managed and focused on the needs of their patients.”
