CQC

Care Quality Commission - ratings and reports

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the body responsible for checking that all hospitals in England and Wales meet national standards.

CQC hospital inspections

The CQC perform hospital inspections that check standards and that we are treating patients with respect, involving patients in their care, caring for people safely and protecting them from harm. Inspections also look at staffing. These inspections can be unannounced inspections where the trust has no notice of the CQC visiting or themed inspections looking at particular areas.

All trusts also receive a comprehensive CQC inspection of services where a team of inspectors come for a longer period of time and look at all services across a hospital trust.

Our last comprehensive inspection took place in 2019 and the results were published in April 2020 and the Trust was given an overall rating of ‘good’ by the CQC.
