The Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals (HEYH) Care Quality Commission (CQC) Report 2017
Although an overall rating of ‘Requires Improvement’ is not, on the face of it, an encouraging outcome, there are a number of signs that standards are heading in the right direction.
• The Trust have been given a ‘Good’ rating in all areas for ‘Caring’
• A significant number of services, including urology surgery, critical care teacher trainers, the perinatal mental health team/midwifery team, amongst others, have been judged to be outstanding.
• The Trust’s responsiveness rating has gone from ‘Inadequate’ to ‘Requires Improvement’.
• Staff morale has improved.
There are obviously a number of areas that must be improved, but there do appear to be procedures and plans in place to ensure this happens.
The report refers to a need for further public and stakeholder engagement and this is a sentiment echoed by Healthwatch KuH & HWERY and something that we would actively look to support HEYH with.
