Excellent leadership from managers 

In addition, the CQC also praised outpatient services and diagnostic services at The Christie Private Care. Patient feedback about the care they received was consistently excellent with a strong patient-centred culture demonstrated by staff. 

The genuine open culture in which all safety concerns around the services offered are raised by staff were also recognised by the CQC as being outstanding. The facility was found to have a proactive approach to anticipating and managing risk – ensuring that all services had sufficient medical and nursing staff to ensure patient safety.  

Claire Smith, CEO of HCA Healthcare UK Joint Ventures said;

“We are delighted to have received an outstanding result from the CQC, and are proud that our passionate staff, exceptional patient care and tailored services have been recognised. 

We have a very dedicated team at The Christie Private Care who go above and beyond on a daily basis to give our patients the very best experience- we are constantly working to raise our standards and continuously improve care for all our patients.”

Ellen Armistead, Deputy Chief Inspector of Hospitals (North Region), said:

“This is an exceptional report for a service that delivers exemplary care. We saw excellent leadership from managers, and all staff were passionate about providing high quality care for their patients.
“It was clear the clinic delivered person-centred care – it provided a tailored service to each patient, including practical, spiritual and emotional support. Patients were able to access services and appointments at a time that suited them, appointment waiting times were consistently low.

“To be rated outstanding in four areas is a wonderful achievement and I congratulate The Christie Private Care Clinic. CQC will continue to monitor the service and return at some time in the future to check on progress.”
