Our Trust has been rated by the Care Quality Commission as ‘Good’ in all five of the main domains of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led, giving an us overall rating of ‘Good’. We’ve also been awarded an ‘Outstanding’ rating for ‘use of resources’ by an NHS Improvement inspection.

We can achieve this when we listen to our staff and act on their feedback. We have an ambitious agenda which is to deliver outstanding care to our patients in a workplace that is dynamic, inclusive, innovative, and demonstrates our PROUD to Care values.

These are both exciting and challenging times for the Trust and our partners, in particular for the people agenda.
