This is the highest rating available under the Healthcare Commission rating scheme.The performance rating reports are designed to review the key factors the Trusts need to achieve to deliver a better service to patients. This includes Patient Focus, Clinical Focus, Capacity and Capability Focus, Access to Quality Services, Improving Health and Services Provision. Overall, the Healthcare Commission report concluded that Mayday Hospital is delivering in each of these areas.Dr Jörg Täubel, Managing Director of Richmond Pharmacology, commented: “We have been working closely with the Trust over the past 18 months to facilitate the move of our second unit to Mayday hospital. Throughout this period of time I have been consistently impressed with the quality I experienced when working with the Trust. I am very pleased that this standard has been recognized by the Healthcare Commission. It's reassuring to conduct our trials within such a well managed, acute setting.”Richmond opened the new unit within Mayday University Hospital in May 2005.To view the Healthcare Commission report on Mayday click here.
