CQC Inspection - Have your say!
The Trust is governed by a regulatory framework set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which has a statutory duty to assess the performance of all healthcare organisations.
The CQC provides assurance to the public and commissioners about our quality of care through a system of monitoring performance across a broad range of areas, to ensure we meet essential standards.
We have been informed by the CQC that we will be one of the hospitals that will be included in their scheduled inspections for Quarter Four. This inspection will take place between 17 and 20 March 2015.
The inspections – which are carried out by a mixture of experienced clinicians, nurses, other allied healthcare professionals, CQC Inspectors and experts by experience – will assess whether our services overall are safe, effective, caring, responsive to people’s needs and well-led.
Following the inspection, we will receive an overall rating of either: outstanding, good, requires improvement or inadequate . There will be three reports: One for each acute site and one for the community, each report will give an overall rating.
Ahead of the inspection you are invited to have your say about the care you received as a patient of York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. You can do this via a survey on the CQC's website. To have your say go to >> Share your experience.
*Please note that the CQC's questionnaire cannot be filled in via mobile devices such as iphones and tablets.
