Many in Britain don't trust their hospital

Friday, March 1, 2013 8:59 PM

LONDON, March 1 (UPI) -- In England, almost 40 percent of National Health Service staff would not recommend their hospital to their friends and family, health officials say.

Ninety percent of the doctors and nurses at the top-rated British hospitals said they would recommend treatment at their facility, while less than 40 percent at North Cumbria University Hospitals and United Lincolnshire Hospitals would recommend treatment where they work, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The findings were based on an internal NHS survey of more than 100,000 staff working at more than 259 NHS organizations across England.

The NHS staff were asked to react to the statement: "If a friend or relative needed treatment, I would be happy with the standard of care provided by this organization."

Nationally, 63 percent said they agreed or strongly agreed with the statement; 12 percent said they disagreed or strongly disagreed; 25 percent did not express a preference; and 37 percent did not recommend treatment, officials said.

The top-performing hospital in the survey was Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, where 94 percent of staff would recommend treatment.
