In this section
The Trust is a large, complex, and diverse organisation.
We have tight monitoring systems in place to ensure we consistently meet all the national performance targets set by the Care Quality Commission (England's healthcare watchdog), as well as delivering a high quality and safe service to all our patients.
What does the Care Quality Commission (CQC) say about us?
All NHS bodies are subject to a number of external reviews to assess performance. The outcomes of these reviews are made available to the public and other healthcare organisations.
The Care Quality Commission carries out regular checks on our hospitals.
Our current rating is 'Requires Improvement'. For more information and to read our latest report, visit the CQC website. You can also see a summary of the CQC's latest inspections of our hospitals at the links below:

Quality audits and performance reports
We have an active programme of clinical audit. Clinical audit is the process by which our own quality of care is compared with exemplar standards. Clinical audit is undertaken as part of our clinical governance framework, helping us ensure that our hospitals and services are safe. Details of our performance reports presented to the Trust Board will be available via the Board of Directors agendas and papers page.
Consultant treatment outcomes
NHS England has begun the staged publication of mortality rates for individual hospital consultants in ten specialties, giving patients more information about their treatment, and helping the NHS drive up and maintain the quality of care. Access our Trust's COP data here.
