IMPROVEMENTS to a department at Weston General Hospital have been recognised following two inspections.
The Clinical Pathology Accreditation UK and the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency both visited the Uphill facility in recent weeks.
Their reports highlighted advances in service quality and safety as well as a commitment to staff training.
Improvements were also identified in the transfusion laboratory.
Trust medical director Nick Gallegos said: “The pathology team of healthcare scientists, consultant medical staff and support staff have worked very hard over the past year to bring in new procedures and working methods.”
