Compliance & Assurance

To ensure the Trust is compliant with essential standards of quality and safety we are regularly assessed.

Theses assessments are carried out by the Care Quality Commision and NHS Improvement.

Care Quality Commission

The Trust is assessed periodically by the Care Quality Commission on Quality standards and on a range of performance indicators.

NHS Improvement

As a Foundation Trust, the Trust is also regulated by NHS Improvement.

NHS Improvement sets out the performance targets for Foundation Trusts each year in its ‘Compliance Framework’ and produces a rating based on this assessment.

We are required to submit a self certification declaration and declaration of governor training in line with our license requirements.
