Nottinghamshire Healthcare is delighted to have maintained its Good rating following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission into five core services and a well led review during October and November 2017. This demonstrates the Trust’s long term commitment to maintaining and improving the mental health, intellectual disability and community physical healthcare services provided to the people of Nottinghamshire and beyond. The CQC inspection was to check whether the Trust provided services that were caring, responsive, safe, effective and well led.
A key area for focus for the Trust is safety where the Inspectors found that the Trust requires improvement. We acknowledge this as a priority moving forward and front line staff will be working hard to make sure that patients, service users, carers and volunteers have a safe experience of our services.
Ruth Hawkins is Chief Executive of Nottinghamshire Healthcare:
“This report is a positive outcome for the Trust, our staff, patients and their carers, maintaining as it does our Good rating. Whilst acknowledging the great work that our staff do in delivering our complex and comprehensive range of services we aim to learn from the findings of the report and make improvements. We will fully address the areas that require improvement over the coming months. The CQC is about fundamental standards and while we would always want to demonstrate compliance with those standards our ambition is to be even better.”
