The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust

Grading:  - Good

The Royal Marsden Community Services formed Sutton and Merton Community Services (SMCS) in 2011. Various community health services were provided in the London Boroughs of Sutton and Merton. From 1 April 2016 The Royal Marsden Community Services stopped providing services to Merton and formed Sutton Community Services (SCS). Our reports in to community health services include data from the 12 month period leading up to our inspection which was before the disaggregation of services and therefore contains some data relating to Merton. We have included separate data where it was available. Our site visits during the inspection were limited to Sutton only.

Overall, we have rated the trust as good. We rated it good for providing care which was safe, effective, responsive to the needs of the population, and well-led. We rated the trust outstanding for the caring domain. Additionally, we rated the radiotherapy service as outstanding across both hospital locations. This was because the radiotherapy service was patient centred; care was provided in line with national standards, with radiotherapy services participating in national and international research programmes.
