Our Improvement Journey

Led by Karen James, the CEO and the Medical Director Brendan Ryan, within three years the trust has gone from being rated as ‘Inadequate’ by the CQC to being rated as ‘Good’ in the inspection that took place in August 2016.

This was recognised by the CQC as a huge achievement in such a short space of time. The trust now plans to continue the improvement journey and is aiming to achieve an Outstanding status.  In addition to this, the trust has redefined and developed its strategy with the aim of becoming a fully Integrated Care Organisation. To this aim, the organisation now provides acute and community services, with plans in place to integrate with adult social care services, reflective of its ambitions to become a fully ‘integrated’ health and social care provider.
