Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust

Grading:  - Requires Improvement

When aggregating ratings, our inspection teams follow a set of principles to ensure consistent decisions. The principles will normally apply but will be balanced by inspection teams using their discretion and professional judgement in the light of all of the available evidence.

We found that the Black Country Mental Health Partnership NHS Foundation Trust was performing at a level which led to a judgement of Requires Improvement.

The provider failed to consistently ensure that all people receiving a service were protected from potential harm due to poor environments at hallam street hospital and not consistently checking and maintaining equipment used by patients.

We found that systems to manage information governance were inconsistent; record keeping and archiving of patients files were of concern in some areas. We also found that training in the mental health act & mental capacity act was not a mandatory requirement on an ongoing basis.
