Statement on the urgent care centre at King George Hospital

23 August 2018

Following publication (22 August) of the Care Quality Commission (CQC) report into the Urgent Care Centre service at King George Hospital (KGH), provided by PELC, Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge CCGs, together with Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospital Trust, have today (Thursday 23 August) conducted a formal, clinically-led visit to the site in order to determine any patient safety issues.

After the CQC inspection in April 2018, PELC implemented a number of changes to practices at KGH. Following our visit today, we are assured of the safety of services provided by PELC at KGH and that patients can be confident in the safety and quality of the services being provided in the Urgent Care Centre.
