A hospi­tal has topped the league for knee-re­place­ment qual­ity in a sur­vey put to pa­tients through­out Eng­land.

The Pa­tient Re­ported Out­come Mea­sures (Proms) are gath­ered at NHS Hos­pi­tals and pri­vate hos­pi­tals pro­vid­ing care.

Us­ing sur­vey in­for­ma­tion col­lected be­tween April 2016 to March 2017, Spire Wash­ing­ton Hospi­tal in Rick­le­ton, came out on top af­ter pa­tients an­swered 12 ques­tions as­sess­ing health gain fol­low­ing knee-re­place­ment surgery.

Proms have been used to mea­sure health im­prove­ment for more than 10 years and pro­vide an in­di­ca­tion of the out­comes and qual­ity of care de­liv­ered to pa­tients who have re­ceived NHS-funded care.

Spire Hospi­tal di­rec­tor An­drew John­son said: “To be at the top is a tes­ta­ment to the care and ded­i­ca­tion we show in help­ing our pa­tients back to health.”
