Inspection date: 22 April 2010

We carried out an announced inspection visit to Galloway Community Hospital, Stranraer on Thursday 22 April 2010.

We assessed the hospital against our HAI standards and inspected the following areas:

  • Dalrymple ward (assessment/rehabilitation)
  • Garrick ward (acute medical receiving)
  • accident and emergency (A&E) department
  • day surgery unit
  • maternity unit
  • outpatients department
  • renal unit.

Overall, the inspection visit to Galloway Community Hospital resulted in one requirement and four recommendations. These are linked to compliance with our HAI standards. NHS Dumfries & Galloway must address the requirement and recommendations, with any necessary improvements made, as a matter of priority.
