Compliance and assurance

We are regularly assessed to ensure we comply with essential standards of quality and safety.

Theses assessments are carried out by the Care Quality Commission 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, EPUT is also regulated by NHS Improvement.

In line with NHS Improvement guidance, our Board of Directors must carry out a self-assessment each year in order to meet the conditions of the Trust’s licence.

This includes a self certification declaration and declaration of governor training.
