Double delight for trust

A HEALTH organisation in the region has maintained its position as one of the country’s top performers.

CHKS Ltd, part of Capita, has named Northumbria Healthcare Trust as one of the 40 best performing NHS providers in England for the sixth consecutive year at its Top Hospitals awards.

And for the second time, the trust won the CHKS data quality award for England, which recognises the importance of clinical coding and data quality.

Its chief executive, Jim Mackey, said: “To be named, once again, as one of the country’s top performing trusts is fantastic news for our patients and staff.”
