South Shropshire MP Philip Dunne has welcomed Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust receiving a Good rating, following inspection by the Care Quality Commission.
Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust was rated as Good overall following an inspection which took place between January and March this year. The Trust had previously been rated as Requires Improvement.
Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust provides a range of community-based health services across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin. CQC inspected community health services for adults, community health services for children, young people and families, community health inpatient services, community end of life care, community dental services and urgent care services.
Mr Dunne said: “A Good rating for Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust shows the CQC have seen clear evidence of improvement, and is welcome news for patients across Shropshire.
The CQC highlighted widespread improvements, so I congratulate staff and management on their hard work.”
The Trust was rated Good in all five key questions CQC asks – are services safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.
