The Berkshire Independent Hospital’s surgical services have been judged as ‘good’ following an unannounced inspection.

In a report published on 21 June 2019, the Care Quality Commission said it visited to follow up concerns it had received about the hospital, run by Ramsay Healthcare.

The inspection found that staff had the right skills, training and experience. Emergency equipment was checked, infection control procedures were followed and the environment was clean, the report adds.

The CQC also spoke with six patients who gave compliments about their care.

The hospital, based on Wensley Rd in Reading, sees a mixture of NHS and private patients.
