Media Statement – Care Quality Commission (CQC) Inspection

17 April 2014

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has today issued a media release regarding the publication of a quality report, following inspection of our services in February 2014.

Care Quality Commission (CQC) Inspection

Chief Executive of Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Trust, Dr Kate Fallon said:

“We at the Trust are delighted with this very positive report about our services from the CQC.

“We are pleased that after such a thorough inspection our services were deemed to be safe, caring, effective, well led and responsive with a clear focus on quality. We are also extremely proud that one of the recurring themes of the CQC’s report is that patients are overwhelmingly positive about the quality of the services we provide and that the CQC reported positively on the care and compassion provided by our staff. This reflects the feedback from patients through our ongoing programme of patient surveys and engagement.

“As we expected, the report identifies some specific areas where we need to make improvements to systems and processes and we are already making progress towards delivering these.   We welcome the insight provided by the CQC. The issues highlighted are related to specific areas of administration and we are confident that none have resulted in any harm to patients, their families or carers.

“This new style inspection has been extremely helpful to us as we continue to work towards achieving Foundation Trust status.”
