NHS Dumfries and Galloway welcome this very positive report by HEI on the safety and cleanliness of Galloway Community Hospital in Stranraer.
A spokesperson for NHS D&G stated “The report recognises the range of work which is carried out on a constant basis at GCH to maintain the hospital’s safety and cleanliness, the clear promotion of infection control policies and procedures, and the commitment and knowledge of the teams on the ground undertaking this work.
It recognises the role played by the infection control public involvement group, which sees residents of the region actively involved in auditing the safety and cleanliness of its hospitals.
And it notes that patients who were surveyed during the inspection of GCH spoke positively about the work which they witnessed taking place.
The NHS Board will now action the very limited recommendations emerging from the report as part of its commitment to ensuring the highest possible standards.”
