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.

CQC reports

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.

We have summarised our most recent CQC inspection results. The CQC website also provides reports on the various sites at which King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust offers services.

Data about how we perform against patient safety indicators such as infection control, cleanliness and safe staffing levels is also available on
