CQC find improvements at Poole NHS Foundation Trust

23/01/2018
England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals has found improvement in the quality of services for patients during the latest inspection of Poole NHS Foundation Trust. As a result of the inspection, the trust is now rated as Good.

“Previously, Poole NHS Foundation Trust was rated as requiring improvement. I am pleased to note that the Trust has taken our previous reports and used them to implement improvement. The trust already had a good track record in delivering effective, caring and well-led care and has made significant improvements in the responsiveness of services we inspected.

“The board and senior leadership team had a clear vision that was aligned to the outcome of the Dorset wide clinical services review which was shortly before our inspection. It is important that any changes to the ways hospitals services are commissioned and planned in future ensure that the needs of the patients who rely on these services come first.

“The trust leadership knows that some further areas of improvement are required.

"Our inspectors will return at a later date to check on what progress has been made.”
