Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust gain ‘outstanding’ status TWICE.
A huge congratulations are in order for all staff at Northumbria Healthcare Foundation Trust who have gained ‘outstanding’ status from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for an unprecedented second year. They were one of only a very few trusts to have been given the rating more than once, the last being in 2016.
The services were awarded ‘outstanding’ for being effective, caring and responsive, whilst remarking on the life changing impact that the services have on patients.
The accolade is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all staff in the trust, some of which we have worked with on digital projects, including their website.
Maternity services were highlighted for extensive praise, as were the services for strokes and a new tool for preventing falls.
In challenging times for the NHS, we are delighted to be able to celebrate the successes of our local services so again, massive congratulations to you all!
