Edgware General mental health ward praised
A hospital has been awarded high marks and praise from its patients.
Edgware General Hospital’s mental health unit, in Burnt Oak Broadway, scored higher than the national average in its Patient Led Assessment of the Care Environment (PLACE) which took place last month.
Almost 92 per cent of people liked the food at the hospital, and 90 per cent thought it respected their privacy, dignity and well-being.
Almost 85 per cent of people were impressed with the ward's condition, appearance and maintenance and 99 per cent felt the hospital was clean.
The PLACE inspections were introduced in April 2013 by Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health Trust.
Maria Kane, chief executive of the trust, said: “It is really important that our patients and service users are able to tell us what they think about the places in which they receive their care.
“I am pleased to see that we have scored highly on these assessments across all our sites.”
