Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been shortlisted for the CHKS national healthcare efficiency award, part of the CHKS annual Top Hospitals programme awards 2017. The CHKS Top Hospitals awards celebrate the success of healthcare providers across the UK and are awarded to healthcare organisations for their achievements in healthcare quality and improvement.
The healthcare efficiency award is new for 2017. It recognises organisations that have achieved high standards of operational excellence and outperform their peers on a range of 14 efficiency indicators that support care quality and patient outcomes.
CHKS, part of Capita Healthcare Decisions, has used over 27 years of experience in the analysis of hospital data to decide the indicators on which each of the Top Hospitals programme awards are judged. Awards are made on the basis of an analysis of publicly available datasets and every NHS acute trust in England, Wales and Northern Ireland is included. Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is one of just five shortlisted in this category.

Everything we do at ASPH is designed to ensure we deliver the highest possible standards in healthcare to patients who use our hospitals. This recognition is testament to the commitment of everyone that forms part of the team at the Trust.”
