Darent Valley Hospital

11th July 2022
Grading Explained: Good

Inspection visit took place on February 21.

This was an unannounced focused inspection of Darent Valley Hospital’s urgent and emergency care services, carried out as part of a pilot approach of the urgent and emergency care pathway across Kent and Medway to assess how patient risks were being managed across health and social care services during increased and extreme capacity pressures. 

Safe, responsive and well-led were assessed. Effective and caring were not assessed, but any areas of concern would have been reported. The rating of the service improved as a result of this inspection.
