Care Quality Commission

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) rates services as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate. You will start to see our latest performance ratings on our website and at our premises in public entrances and waiting areas from 1 April 2015. This is all about helping to achieve better awareness and greater transparency for people who use services and the public about the services we provide. You can find out how our care services performed at their last CQC inspection here and read about the actions we are continually taking to improve our standards.
