FOR the second year running a hospital trust in Sussex has been awarded the highest rating.

Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which runs St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester, has been placed in Band 6 by the Care Quality Commission.

That is the highest-performing band, comprised of the trusts judged to be most likely to offer the best and safest care for patients.

Cathy Stone, director of nursing and patient safety, said: ‘No single piece of information can tell you absolutely everything about a hospital, but these ratings provide a very comprehensive picture of the work we do.

‘I hope that our top rating – the second successive time we have been given such an accolade – gives patients reassurance that our staff are working hard to do a fantastic job.

‘Most of the feedback we receive tells us that people truly value our staff, and this is another welcome vote of confidence in them.’
