Trust receives Care Quality Commission rating of ‘Good’

Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust is pleased to announce that it has been rated ‘Good’ following the Care Quality Commission (CQC) follow-up inspection of the Trust undertaken in October 2016.

The CQC has today published its report with an improved rating of the Trust, which received a rating of good across all domains of the inspection – safe; well-led; caring; effective and responsive.

The CQC noted that there have been improvements across services since its last inspection, and highlighted a number of outstanding examples of compassionate care in teams for adults of working age, and specialist community mental health teams for children and young people, where the service was rated ‘outstanding’.

Trust Chief Executive, Tracy Taylor, said: “We are delighted that the Trust have been assessed as ‘Good’ following a re-inspection of our services, and that the excellent work of our staff has been recognised.

“The outcome of the CQC inspection is fantastic news for our staff, partners and importantly the people who use our services. The Trust Board is extremely proud of the continued determination and commitment of our staff, who work tirelessly to ensure improvements are made.

“I am particularly proud of the feedback received from CQC inspectors in respect of the caring nature of our staff, and the way in which people are treated with dignity and respect. CQC recognition of these factors is a testament to the dedication and hard work demonstrated everyday by our staff.”
