Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust

Grading:  - Good

We inspected Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust (the trust) as part of our comprehensive inspection programme. We inspected all eight core services at Harrogate District Hospital, the in-patient services at Ripon Community Hospital, the minor injuries units at Selby and Ripon as well as community dental services, community healthcare services for adults, and children’s community services across various areas served by the trust. In addition, we carried out an unannounced inspection on 10 February 2016. Harrogate District Hospital had been previously inspected in January 2014, but not rated at that time.

We have rated Harrogate and District Foundation Trust as overall good. On the whole service provision was good across the trust, with some areas rated as outstanding. However, there were some services that required more attention, particularly children’s and young people’s and end of life services within the acute hospital and the community in-patient services and minor injuries units. Plans were in place regarding the development of the community in-patient services with the introduction of new models of care.
