How we measure up - our hospital ratings

The Trust is governed by a regulatory framework set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which has a statutory duty to assess the performance of healthcare organisations.

The CQC requires that hospital trusts are registered with the CQC and therefore licensed to provide health services.

The Trust continues to be registered without conditions by the Care Quality Commission to provide health services.

The CQC provides assurance to the public and commissioners about the quality of care through a system of monitoring a trust's performance across a broad range of areas to ensure it meets essential standards.

The CQC assessors and inspectors frequently review all available information and intelligence they hold about a hospital, and depending on what this tells them, they may choose to inspect a hospital to ensure standards are being maintained.
