Chesterfield Royal rated ‘good’ by CQC

England’s chief inspector of hospitals has rated the services provided by Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as ‘good’ following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission in February.

Chesterfield Royal Hospital became a foundation trust in 2005. The hospital serves five local districts with a population of approximately 441,000 people.

CQC carried out a focused inspection in July 2016 and a follow-up in February 2017 to review how the provider was leading the organisation following the Trust’s last comprehensive inspection in April 2015 when it was rated as Requires Improvement overall. Inspectors found improvements had been made and rated the Trust as Good overall.

Professor Sir Mike Richards, the chief inspector of hospitals, said: “Overall, Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust provides good care to the population that it serves and we were pleased to see many improvements had been made.

“Since our inspection in April 2015, the Trust has made significant improvements to ensure there was a positive culture change. The Trust had a focus on wanting to improve the quality and safety of the care being delivered to patients.”
