Following the CQC inspection undertaken of our hospitals and community services in October 2016, the regulator’s resulting report has been published.
An overall Trust rating is not included in the new published report as it was a focussed inspection, therefore the 2014 rating of ‘requiring improvement’ remains. However, the CQC have acknowledged that significant positive change has been made in a number of areas and the Trust is rated ‘good’ for being ‘effective’ and ‘well-led’.
Whilst there remain some key areas where we need to continue to work hard to improve, there are also many areas of excellent practice. It is fair to say significant progress has been made and the Trust continues to move in a positive direction.
The full report has been published today on the CQC website. See: Report.
