Our CQC Inspection 2016

On Thursday 9 February 2017, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) published the reports following its Inspection of our services in October 2016.

We were extremely pleased that our rating improved to that of GOOD, with OUTSTANDING for Caring. The outcome is terrific news for staff, our partners in the Bay, and most importantly for the patients and the people who use our services.

This means we have continuously improved over three successive hospital inspections over the last three years moving from ‘Inadequate’ and in special measures to today's rating of ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ for caring. It also means we are among the top rated NHS hospitals in the country.

During the inspection, inspectors found that we had made significant progress across most services since the last Inspection in July 2015, particularly in maternity and gynaecology and end of life services. Inspectors also noted improvements in culture and engagement, staffing levels, strategy and plans for the future, leadership, governance and risk management, and a more positive approach to inclusion and diversity.

This result is a remarkable achievement and reflects the hard work our staff have done to change our culture and focus on patient safety and quality of care. We feel enormously proud to work with such committed and talented staff.

The full reports from our latest inspection can be viewed on the CQC's website at: http://www.cqc.org.uk/provider/RTX.
