The Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates all health and adult social care services in England, including those provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisation. It also protects the interests of people detained under the Mental Health Act. The CQC makes sure that essential standards of quality and safety are being met where care is provided, from hospitals to private care homes.
We hosted the CQC inspection team in Autumn 2018 and the results of their inspection were published in March 2019.
We are delighted and proud to announce that the Care Quality Commission have awarded the Trust an overall “Outstanding” rating – the highest overall rating they can award.
The news means that Combined Healthcare is 1 of only 2 specialist mental health Trusts in England with an overall ‘Outstanding’ rating.
