CQC re-inspection report demonstrates improvements across The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

02 Mar 2017 09:44:34

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has today, Thursday 2 March 2017, published its report into the re-inspection of The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust which took place in September and October 2016.

The CQC has recognised considerable improvements across the Trust, including some areas of ‘outstanding’ practice.

The Trust has no areas rated as ‘inadequate’ and has increased the number of services rated as ‘good’. The number of areas requiring improvement has reduced.
The CQC was particularly impressed with the ‘caring’ domain across the Trust, and marked it as ‘good’ throughout, with a rating of ‘outstanding’ for the caring domain at Breathing Space and Oakwood Community Centre.
In line with their standard practice, the overall rating for the Trust was not reassessed and therefore remains at the ‘requires improvement’ level from the original full inspection in February 2015.

“We have worked hard to ensure that our services are caring, compassionate and safe for patients,” said Trust Chief Executive Louise Barnett. “We welcome the report and its recognition of the improvements the Trust has made, which reflects our ongoing commitment to ensuring that we provide excellent, high-quality care for the people of Rotherham. I would like to thank all of our colleagues as this progress is a testament to their hard work and dedication.”

Trust Chairman Martin Havenhand added: “The report demonstrates a range of improvements which have been achieved by colleagues across the Trust – in the hospital and in the community. We know that we still have areas which need further improvement and will focus on these for the benefit of patients.”

A full copy of the report can be obtained from 2 March on the CQC website www.cqc.org.uk/provider/RFR.
