Sherwood Forest recognised in Top 40 best performing English hospitals in the CHKS Top Hospitals Awards

CHKS Top 40 Sherwood Forest Hospitals

May 11, 2017

We are delighted and proud to announce that we have been recognised as one of the top 40 hospitals in England at the CHKS Top Hospitals Awards.

CHKS is a hospital bench-marking service and one of the leading providers of healthcare intelligence and quality improvement services.
Speaking after the awards were announced last night, SFH Chief Executive Peter Herring said: “I am delighted that the Trust’s work over the past 18 months has been recognised with this Top 40 Award. This reflects that, as a Trust, we are among the safest in the country, have low mortality and are more efficient in the way we deliver our clinical services.
“Staff should be proud of what we have achieved during our recent improvement journey and this award recognises the excellent progress we have made; and, as we are currently finalists in a number of other awards, I also hope it will be the first of many!
“One of the aims of the CHKS Top 40 Hospitals Award is to inspire continuous improvement and, in this respect, we must not sit back and accept that what we do now is good enough - our ambition must be to keep improving, driving up our standards of safety, care, and efficiency as we strive to be outstanding in everything we do.

"It is clear we are capable of achieving fantastic work that gets results. Well done to everyone and please keep up the good work.”
