Quality Standards

Each Aspen hospital/clinic monitors and reviews a range of performance measures including: infection control statistics, patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes.

We ask our patients if they would recommend our hospitals/clinics to others requiring similar treatment and seek feedback on a range of measures including their overall opinion on:

  • the quality of care
  • the overall cleanliness
  • trust and confidence in our nurses and Consultants
  • if they were treated with respect and dignity.


In 2019, Aspen Healthcare hospitals collected almost 10,000 completed Patient Feedback Questionnaires. Inpatient and day case ratings for key areas were as follows:

  • 97.5% of patients said they would be ‘Likely’ or ‘Extremely Likely’ to recommend us

  • 94.8% of our patients answered ‘Yes, definitely’ when asked if they were involved as much as they wanted in decisions
