Medway NHS Foundation Trust statement

"Quality of care and treatment is paramount at Medway and many quality of care markers show the Trust is delivering good standards of care; the Trust fully meets the Care Quality Commission’s strict standards.

"Incidences of pressure ulcers and falls in hospital are in line with or better than national rates, and continue to improve, and infection rates are some of the lowest in the South of England.

"As part of ongoing investment in patient safety, in October 2012 we invested in extending the critical care outreach team to improve the response to deteriorating patients 24/7."
