Inspectors from new patient-led watchdog inspect Goodmayes treatment centre
A NHS treatment centre in Goodmayes has scored top marks from a new patient-led initiative set up by the government.
The North East London Treatment Centre, on the King George and Goodmayes Hospital site in Barley Lane, underwent the first assessment of its kind in June, after David Cameron called for a change in the way we assess hospitals.
Veronica Pinder, a NHS worker at the centre, said she was thrilled the report, published last month, was so positive.
Ms Pinder said: “We were delighted when the report came back rating our standards of cleanliness at almost 99 percent.
“We take hygiene and infection control very seriously and have never had a case of MRSA or C-difficile.”
