Runcorn hospice passes unannounced inspection with flying colours
Halton Haven Hospice has passed an unexpected inspection with flying colours.
Health watchdog, The Care Quality Commision recently measured the Runcorn hospice in Barnfield Avenue, Murdishaw, against 28 very detailed standards.
Inspectors are responsible for scrutinising hospices, care homes and hospitals.
Viv Gorman, head of clinical services and registered manager said “Staff at Halton Haven Hospice are well trained, resourced and supported to deliver the very best specialist palliative care and they do so in a compassionate and caring manner as was in demand by the recent CQC Inspection.
“I feel very proud to be the head of clinical services and registered manager. I was appointed in April this year.
“During my short but eventful time at the haven I have witnessed the hospice’s commitment to demonstrating a ‘special kind of caring’ and this extends to patients, relatives and colleagues.
"The people of Halton are very fortunate to have such a commodity as the haven.”
Halton Haven was founded 32-years-ago by the late Dom Valdez and provides free round-the-clock care for adults with life-limiting illnesses.
The hospice has 12 in-patient beds and 60 places a week in their day hospice.
