One of our founding beliefs at Circle is that by providing information on our clinical results, our patients and their GPs will be able to make a more informed choice about coming to Circle Bath for treatment. Everything we measure we publish on our website for all to see.
Care Quality Commission
Circle Bath is registered with and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to deliver the regulated activities of treatment of disease, disorder or injury, surgical procedures, diagnostic and screening procedures. We are required to comply with the high standards they set for quality and safety in hospitals.
Our current CQC rating is "Good". Read the latest inspection reports.
Unplanned returns to theatre
An operation, however minor, is a serious event and we understand that this can make our patients feel nervous. However, we work hard to ensure all our patients receive the best possible outcome first time round. Consequently unplanned returns to our own theatres within 28 days of surgery are measured on a monthly basis. During 2014, CircleBath has had 19 unplanned returns to theatre out of 6,263 patients treated in theatres.
We know our patients are concerned by what they read about healthcare associated infections, like MRSA, which is one of the reasons why we strive to provide the very highest standards of care.
Because of the stringent approach Circle takes to infection prevention and control, in the last 12 months across our hospitals we have had zero reported cases of bloodstream infections for MRSA, E. Coli and C-Diff.
C.Difficile is another healthcare associated infection, that causes concern for our Patients. Like MRSA, we take infection control very seriously and you can read more about our infection control policy here.
Circle Bath has had zero cases of healthcare acquired C.difficile since opening in March 2010.
