PERFORMANCE: Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust was picked out by the Care Quality Commission as performing below average for mixed sex bathroom facilities in the inpatient survey.

The results of the 2012 national inpatient survey were published by the CQC earlier this month.

Dartford and Gravesham was among seven trusts identified by the CQC as performing “significantly worse than average” for question 11 in the survey – while staying in hospital, did you ever use the same bathroom or shower area as patients of the opposite sex?
