Quality Assessment Information
WHO Safe Surgery
The World Health Organisation (WHO) safe surgery check list is completed before and after surgery by the surgical teams to ensure avoidable errors endangering lives are reduced. The checklist has improved anaesthetic safety, ensures correct site surgery, avoids surgical site infections and improves communication and teamwork amongst the surgical team.
Uses care pathways
The hospital uses care pathways which are evidence based tools to help a patient with a specific condition or diagnosis move progressively through the clinical experience, demonstrating continuous quality improvement in a safe and cost-effective manner.
Multidisciplinary cancer team
The hospital approaches cancer care with a multidisciplinary team (MDT). Every cancer patient is discussed by an MDT team of relevant specialists, to ensure that all available and appropriate treatment options are considered for each patient.
Pre screening for infection
The hospital tests patients for infection before or when they are admitted. Testing for some infections ensures the safety of everyone in the facility and allows the hospital to take steps to stop the infection from spreading.

The Bupa Global Hospital Quality Programme-Quality Assessed
The Bupa Global Hospital Quality Programme has been developed together with Joint Commission International (JCI), one of the world’s leading bodies for international healthcare accreditation.
The Bupa Global Hospital Quality Programme operates a review of clinical services provided by a hospital as well as areas such as patient safety, clinical governance and risk systems, infection control, medication management, leadership and staff to confirm that they meet international standards.
We want our customers to have the best possible experience when accessing hospital care. That’s why we have designed a system of assessing the key hospitals and clinics where our customers access care worldwide.
