Celebrating our achievements as a trust is an exciting time. Firstly North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust was announced by the Care Quality Commission this year and awarded the Trust an overall “Outstanding” rating – the highest overall rating they can award. Combined Healthcare is 1 of only 2 specialist mental health Trusts in England with an overall “Outstanding’ rating”.
On the 20th August Health Service Journal ( HSJ ) announced North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare Trust one of the finalists for Mental Health Provider of the year 2019 in the HSJ Awards, alongside 5 other great mental health providers. Thank you everyone at the trust this announcement is for you! Being a Mental Health Provider finalist is great news for the trust and the wider geographical area. This year has been a fruitful one for teams across our Trust – and a pattern we hope to continue! From winning Healthcare Provider of the Year in the Leading Healthcare Awards, being Shortlisted in three categories HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards and, finally, being shortlisted for Public Sector Team of the Year at the Partnerships Awards. It would be great to end the summer and be announced Mental Health Provider of the year.
The HSJ Awards have been celebrating healthcare excellence for 39 years through huge political, technological and financial challenges within the sector
