TRFT welcomes positive CQC report

19 Sep 2012 16:30:34

Following a recent unannounced inspection by The Care Quality Commission (CQC), The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) is pleased to announce that it is meeting the essential standards of quality and safety.

The Review of Compliance Inspection was carried out during an unannounced visit by the CQC in August 2012 as part of a schedule of national reviews. The inspection team observed how people were being cared for and talked to staff and patients at the Rotherham Hospital site.

The inspection focused on what it is like to be a patient in TRFT, how patients are treated by staff and their involvement in making choices about their care, as well as the quality and choice of food and drink available.

TRFT’s Chief Executive Brian James said: “We are obviously delighted that the CQC has reported that we are meeting the essential standards of quality and safety and to be acknowledged that we provide high quality care to our patients.

“We are especially pleased with the positive comments reported during the inspection from patients and our staff which are featured within the report. The staff of the Trust work extremely hard to ensure we deliver a positive patient experience; sometimes we do not get it right, but we can see a positive upward trend which the CQC’s report demonstrates.”

A full copy of the report can be found on the CQC website.
