Core Standards & Ratings

Care Quality Commission

From April 2010 it is a legal requirement for all healthcare providers to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and comply with the essential standards of quality and safety and their associated outcomes.

These outcome based standards are underpinned by the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations 2009, and the Care Quality Commission (Registration) Regulations 2009.

For 2011/12 the Trust is Registered With No Conditions Applied with the Care Quality Commission.
