Our declaration of compliance

Central Manchester University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (including the new Division of Trafford) is pleased to confirm that we are compliant with the Government's requirement to eliminate mixed-sex accommodation, except when it is in the patient's overall best interest, or reflects their personal choice.

 

We have the necessary facilities, resources and culture to ensure that patients who are admitted to our hospitals will only share the room where they sleep with members of the same sex, and same-sex toilets and bathrooms will be close to their bed area.  Sharing with members of the opposite sex will only happen when clinically necessary for example where patients need specialist equipment such as in intensive care, coronary care unit, and recovery areas for immediate post operative period; or when patients actively choose to share for instance the renal units or Children's clinical areas where age appropriate care provision may over ride gender requirements.

 

If our care should fall short of the required standard, we will report it.  We have established audit mechanism to make sure that we do not misclassify any of our reports.  We publish the results of our audits through the Quality of Care Dashboards on a monthly basis, which are displayed at ward entrances.
