Our 2022 CQC report and response
You can view our CQC report here.
The significant progress that has been made at QEH between 2019 and 2022 was recognised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) who rated the Trust as ‘Good’ in all of the core services they inspected in December 2021 and recommended the Trust moves out of the recovery support system (formerly special measures) in February 2022.
The CQC inspected three core services during their unannounced visit in December 2021 – Medicine, Urgent and Emergency Care (including the Emergency Department) and Critical Care. All three services were rated ‘Good’ overall.
The inspection team returned in January 2022 to complete a Well-Led inspection, which has resulted in a ‘Good’ rating for the Trust. This means QEH is now CQC ‘Good’ in three domains – Caring, Well-Led and Effective.
