Focused inspection reports - 22 October 2020

The CQC published focused inspection reports for the Trust on 22 October 2020.

These are reports of what inspectors found when they did unannounced inspections of our services in August 2020.

The key reason for the CQC’s return, following our inspection between January and February 2020, was to test out if we had met the requirements of the warning notice that we were issued with in Spring this year.

They found enough evidence to be able to lift our warning notice, which is great news. It means they saw significant improvements and feel we are on track. They can see a general direction of improvement but they said we still have lots to do.

Getting Back to Good

We are committed to making real changes that will address the issues identified by the Care Quality Commission and help us get our overall rating back to good. 

In fact that's what we've named the improvement project set up to address the issues - Back to Good. 

This isn't going to be something that can be addressed overnight, to make lasting changes that are sustainable it will take time, however, we are promising to share the progress we are making in a transparent manner. Where we are facing challenges we will be honest about them.
