About us

Our performance

A patient trolley is taken into A&EPoole Hospital's performance is assessed a range of key indicators to ensure we are delivering safe, timely, high-quality care to our patients.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regularly inspects and reviews NHS trusts and publishes a summary of our performance. To view their latest report, click here (opens in a new window).

Our government regulator, Monitor, measures us against national targets in areas such as cancer care, A&E, stroke, screening and hospital-acquired infections. Monitor also assesses our financial performance and governance arrangements, to make sure we are managing our business efficiently and effectively.

To find out more about Poole Hospital's performance against key Monitor indicators, visit the Monitor website:

NHS Choices has now launched a ‘transparency site’, My NHS, designed to bring together data from a range of sources to make it easier for the public to access information on healthcare services and providers

The site links to existing data that has already been published on patient safety, efficiency, quality, public health, social care commissioning and hospital food standards.

To view our performance against these standards, visit the MyNHS website:

Consultant treatment outcomes

From July 2013, NHS England began the staged publication of mortality rates for individual hospital consultants in ten specialties.

This is part of an initiative to give patients more information about their treatment, which will ultimately help the NHS to drive up and maintain the quality of care.

The data - covering around 3,500 consultants -  can be viewed on the NHS Choices website

The data will initially be updated annually and publication  became mandatory in 2014.

A set of frequently asked questions and answers on the publication of consultant treatment outcomes is available using the link below.

Friends and family test (FFT)

FFT is a national initiative in which patients are invited to give their feedback by answering one simple question – ‘How likely are you to recommend our ward/A&E department to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?’

The results are collated monthly and sent to Department of Health, who publishes the results via the NHS England and NHS Choices websites, so patients can compare hospital performance and services.
