PERFORMANCE: Queen Victoria Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was picked out by the Care Quality Commission as performing above average in the inpatient survey for the time it takes to get a bed.

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

Queen Victoria Hospital was among 13 trusts identified by the CQC as performing “significantly better than average” for question 9 in the survey – from the time you arrived at the hospital, did you feel that you had to wait a long time to get to a bed on a ward?
