THE trust that runs Queen Alexandra Hospital has been short-listed for a patient safety award.
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust has been recognised at the Comparative Health Knowledge System, or CHKS, Top Hospitals programme.
The patient safety award recognises outstanding performance in providing a safe hospital for patients and is based on a range of indicators, including rates of hospital-acquired infections and mortality.
Director of nursing Julie Dawes said: ‘We’re delighted to be one of only five NHS trusts to have been short-listed for this award.
‘It recognises the hard work and dedication that our staff provide for our patients, allowing us to deliver the high quality of services seen within the trust.’
The awards take place in London on April 30.
