The Care Quality Commission has today published its report following its inspection carried out in July and September this year. The Trust has been rated as ‘Requires Improvement’, which is the same rating as previously awarded in 2018. The link to the CQC report is here.
Chief Executive, Caroline Walker, said; "While the outcome of this report is disappointing for our Board of Directors and for our staff, we will use this as a good source of information to progress our continuous improvement.
"Our staff continue to work incredibly hard under a huge amount of pressure to maintain a high standard of care for our patients and this is reflected in the areas rated as ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ and is something that we should celebrate. We will also continue to stage our own internal quality assessments as part of our ongoing commitment to quality of care and wish to congratulate all of those areas who have achieved an ‘outstanding’ rating as a result of this internal initiative.
"We would like to reassure and assure our patients that we are committed to continuing to focus on the areas that need further support and have already taken action on the areas where concerns have been raised."
