Independent award for hospital
Chelsea and Westminster Hospital has been given a national award after it was revealed as having some of the lowest death rates in the country.
The award, from Dr Foster International, followed on from the hospital's strong performance in the latest Dr Foster Hospital Guide, an annual independent healthcare survey.
It was the only hospital in England with low death rates across all four indicators listed in the report, including deaths after surgery and in the days following discharge from hospital.
Heather Lawrence, chief executive of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, said: "I want to thank every member of staff at the hospital who has played their part in helping us to earn this independent recognition of our commitment to quality and safety."
Tim Baker, chief executive of Dr Foster International, visited the Fulham Road hospital this week to present staff with the award.
