For anyone unfortunate enough to fall and break a hip, St Peter's Hospital in Chertsey has once again come out as one of the safest places in the country to be treated.

The latest report by the Royal College of Physicians, detailing outcomes for patients admitted to 182 hospitals in England with a hip fracture in 2013, shows that Ashford & St Peter's was in the top 16 Trusts for achieving 'Best Practice' in a range of criteria including operations within 36 hours of admission and a multi-disciplinary approach (doctors, nurses and therapists working together) to assessment and after-care. Three year data (2011-13) showed that the Trust has a low mortality for hip fracture patients and was in the top 12 performing Trusts in the country.

The average length of stay in hospital is also falling steadily for the Trust's hip-fracture patients, now around 18 days, which is better for patients.
