The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has today, 31 January 2019, published its report into the inspection of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.

The Trust, which runs Rotherham Hospital and services across the community, was inspected throughout September and October 2018 and this covered five of the Trust’s core services:

  • Urgent and Emergency Services

  • Medical Care

  • Maternity

  • Acute services for Children and Young People

  • Community services for Children and Young People


The Trust’s overall rating remains at ‘requires improvement’ with a ‘good’ rating for caring and responsive. However, the Trust has been rated as ‘inadequate’ for Urgent and Emergency Services. 

Louise Barnett, Chief Executive at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We took immediate action to address issues raised during the inspection. We have strengthened the service and our focus remains on delivering safe and high quality care for the population we serve.

“Whilst the Trust has been rated overall as ‘requires improvement’, it is fantastic that acute services for Children and Young People has been rated as ‘good’.”

In addition, the Trust has recently appointed a new Chief Nurse, Angela Wood, who is working closely with clinical teams to drive quality improvements for patients. 

Angela Wood, Chief Nurse commented: “The Trust has already made a significant amount of progress in Urgent and Emergency Services. We have invested in additional staff and enhanced our training and development.”
