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 last inspected this trust in April 2014 as part of the pilot project of our new comprehensive inspection methodology. We did not rate the Trust at that time.

However we told the trust that they must make improvements to:

  • Incident reporting and learning from incidents.
  • Ensuring all staf had appropriate safeguarding training.

We carried out an announced comprehensive inspection of this trust between 31 May –3 June 2016 and an unannounced inspection on 16 June 2016 to make sure improvements had been made and to rate the service. As part of the inspection, we assessed the leadership and governance arrangements at the trust and inspected the all core services provided by the trust
