The Hamptons Rehabilitation Hospital achieves Outstanding CQC rating

Active Pathways Rated Outstanding

Active Pathways is celebrating today as The Hamptons Rehabilitation Hospital achieves outstanding CQC rating. This phenomenal achievement reflects the commitment and hard work of the staff who always ensure the best possible care for service users.

An article published by the BBC identifies:

  • The Hamptons Bamber Bridge is now just one of six independent hospitals rated as “outstanding” in England that provides rehabilitation mental health services.
  • The Outstanding rating follows a visit by three inspectors in November 2017 who witnessed staff “going the extra mile” for their patients, men aged 18-65.
  • The CQC singled out the “caring” staff who were “well-led” by senior staff at the 14-bed hospital.
  • Brian Cranna, Head of Mental Health Inspection in the North West, said: “We saw lots of outstanding care being delivered, and managers who were passionate about both patient care and staff welfare.”

Active Pathways Braved The Shave

RMN Janet Redding and Service user Robert Scott bravely shed their locks for Macmillan this week raising over £400! We just wanted to say a huge thank you for their courage and support to this worthy cause.

Janet Redding, RMN on Brookhaven shared, “Macmillan is a charity close to my heart, as an organisation we encourage our service users to get involved in charities and fundraising as a way of supporting our service users to increase their self-esteem, help with giving them a role in society which charity work can do.”

I was impressed with their response and how generous everyone has been. I particularly want to thank my shaving buddy Robert for helping to raise over £400.

Ready Steady Bake …..

Our Head Chef, Sam Dupuis organised a cake and coffee afternoon in aid of Macmillan cancer support.   Both service users and staff got into the spirit of the fundraiser, even practising weeks in advance!   The afternoon was a great success and we’re delighted to present Macmillan with over £150.   There’s no doubt there will be future bake offs after the success of this recent afternoon
