Essential Standards of Safety and Quality
Quality, safety, care and compassion underpin all we do at the Trust. We are improving the quality of our patient care all the time.
We are regularly monitored and reviewed to ensure we meet national care standards.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) registers and monitors hospitals in England. We registered with this body in April 2010.
It publishes the Essential Standards of Quality and Safety against which all NHS Trusts are reviewed at least annually. To ensure that we comply, we continuously monitor how we are doing against these standards.
Patient safety indicators
Data about how we perform against patient safety indicators such as infection control, cleanliness and safe staffing levels is also available on www.nhs.uk.
