Maternity and end-of-life care at the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel has been rated ‘good’ by the health watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
The new report comes after follow-up inspections of the departments, which mostly saw ‘requires improvement’ scores in the last report in February.
Of the services at the hospital, 80 per cent of are now rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’.
Jackie Sullivan, managing director of the Royal London, said: “This is tremendous news, and a tribute to the hard work of our talented staff.
“After an uncertain start in the new building, the team has come together and transformed the way we provide services for our patients.”
