The Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust was named as one of the country’s Top Hospitals on Tuesday night.
Trust Chief Operating Officer, Mary Sherry, was presented with the CHKS Top 40 Hospitals 2016 national award based on the evaluation of 22 indicators around clinical effectiveness, health outcomes, efficiency, patient experience and quality of care.
On receiving the accolade Mary said: “I was very proud to collect this award on behalf of our staff in recognition of the very good work that goes on across the Trust”.
Sarah Atkinson, managing director, CHKS, said: “Our awards highlight those trusts that are performing better than their peers in a number of important areas such as safety, quality of care and data quality.”
These awards celebrate the success of healthcare and social care providers across the UK and internationally, and include categories for patient safety, quality of care and data quality. This year a new award category was introduced for excellence in delivering 24/7 emergency care.
