CQC inspection reports

The Trust has officially been recognised as offering ‘outstanding’ healthcare, across a number of its services after a visit by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

After visiting the Trust in February for a routine inspection, the CQC has now reported its findings, rating two more core services as ‘outstanding’.

  • The rating for medical care (including older people’s care) has improved from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’.
  • The rating for end of life care has improved from ‘good’ to ‘outstanding’.
  • Use of resources has improved from ‘good’ (while in shadow form) to ‘outstanding’.

The CQC also inspected urgent and emergency care and, even though they were already dealing with Covid-19 patients at the time, the service has retained its rating of ‘good’.

These join the other ‘outstanding’ ratings for maternity services and for the Trust’s responsiveness and mean that all core services and all aspects of the Trust are either rated as ‘outstanding’ or ‘good’.
