Orthopaedic specialist Fortius Clinic has been rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Fortius has two sites in Westminster and a third in the City of London, providing outpatient consultations, diagnostic scans and interventional radiology services for a range of orthopaedic conditions, including sports injuries.
Operated by Fortius London Limited, it is one of a new breed of providers to have launched in the capital over the past five years, focused on delivering high quality services and superior outcomes in single specialties.
During its inspection last month, it was rated ‘good’ for being effective, caring and responsive, and ‘outstanding’ for being safe and well-led.
Inspectors said the clinic had a positive culture and an open and transparent approach to raising concerns and responding to risks. In addition, they found that senior consultant clinicians worked effectively together to provide ‘strong and sometimes inspirational leadership’.
Head of inspection for primary medical services in London, Antony Hall, said: ‘Fortius Clinic boasts strong dedicated leadership and a staff that is prepared to go the extra mile for their patients. I can only congratulate all involved in helping to get an outstanding CQC rating.’
