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 answer call bells.

Queen Victoria Hospital was among 13 trusts identified by the CQC as performing “significantly better than average” for question 40 – how many minutes after you used the call button did it usually take before you got the help you needed?
