Open and honest care at Musgrove

Musgrove Park Hospital is committed to providing high quality services to the population of Somerset. We aim to put quality first in all that we do and believe this has three key elements:

1. Patient safety is at the heart of all clinical decisions.

2. The experience of patients is the best that we can provide, and the patient environment is clean, attractive and welcoming.

3. We achieve the optimal outcome for any care we provide. 


At Musgrove Park Hospital we continually strive to improve our performance in all of the above areas.
