We're delighted to announce that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) have awarded Surrey and Borders Partnership a rating of ‘Good’, following their inspection of our Trust at the turn of the year.
The CQC have recognised improvements made since our last inspection in a range of areas: from developments in our operational systems and processes to our ability to respond to emerging issues with high quality, well thought-out, plans. They particularly noted the renewed pride and confidence of colleagues who spoke with energy and enthusiasm about what they do, supported by stronger leadership at executive, divisional and service delivery levels throughout the Trust.
In addition to our overall rating, the Commission recognised several areas of Outstanding practice around the Trust:
Where issues were noted, such as the environmental restrictions at the Abraham Cowley Unit and the challenges in recruitment and retention across the NHS as a whole, it was recognised that we had responded to emerging issues in service quality with considered, well-executed and in-depth supportive plans for improvement. The Trust's our leadership team will reflect further on the findings to build on the feedback and progress towards the outstanding care the people who use our services deserve.
