Staff at Queen’s Hospital have been praised for the care they give dead patients.
Following an inspection of the mortuary at the Rom Valley Way, Romford site it was found that Queen’s complied with all the national standards.
The inspection was carried out by the Human Tissue Authority (HTA), and their report said: “The facilities not only demonstrated the the pride the mortuary staff have in their work, but also showed their commitment to the care and dignity of the deceased.”
Around 700 post-mortem examinations are carried out every year at the hospital.
Dr Geraldine Soosay, clinical director for pathology at Queen’s, said: “The HTA inspection report was very pleasing, particularly as it highlighted so many areas of good practice within our service.
