Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust

19th January 2017
Grading Explained: Good

Following this inspection, which took place throughout September and October 2016, we changed the overall rating for the trust from requires improvement to good because:

  • In September 2015, we rated 11 of the 15 core services as good. The intelligence we received, before the 2016 inspection, suggested they had maintained their quality and they were not visited during this inspection.

Following this inspection we have changed the ratings of three more core services from requires improvement to good.

Following this inspection, the core service of long stay/ rehabilitation wards has not changed from requires improvement for the key question of safe or the overall rating of good.

The overall rating of wards for older people with mental health problems has not changed from good. However, following this inspection, the rating for the key question efective remains as requires improvement because care and treatment was not always provided in accordance with the provisions of the Mental Capacity Act
