As reported by the BBC, a community health trust has been congratulated for its ‘widespread improvements’
A troubled community health trust has been rated ‘good’ following its latest inspection.
CQC reported ‘widespread improvements’ across Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust.
The trust delivers services from 130 sites across the UK; in its previous review, in 2016, CQC discovered some serious issues such as a lack of strategy for end-of-life care and problems with under-staffing.
However, inspectors have since stated that they are satisfied that trust leaders have achieved a ‘positive people-first culture’.
“Overall it was providing a service that was consistently good for the people of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin,” Ted Baker, chief inspector of hospitals, said.
“We have come a long way in a short period of time,” the trust’s director of nursing, Steve Gregory, said.
“We will make sure we do not rest on our laurels,” he added. “We must aim to keep improving.”
