Guy’s and St Thomas’ keeps ‘good’ rating after care watchdog inspection

Guy’s and St Thomas’ Trust has been rated ‘Good’ overall by the care watchdog.

Inspectors rated the trust as ‘outstanding’ in the caring and well-led category, but also gave it a ‘requires improvement’ in the ‘being safe’ category.

The Care Quality Commission’s inspectors reviewed adult community services at the Trust during its April and May visit, finding them to be outstanding.

Amanda Pritchard, Chief Executive at the Trust said she was “particularly pleased” that adult community services had been rated outstanding.

She added: “I am delighted that the Care Quality Commission’s report highlights so much of what makes Guy’s and St Thomas’ such a caring and compassionate organisation.

“It highlights why staff across the Trust are so proud to work here, as well as their dedication to providing the best possible care for our patients.

“The areas for improvement in the report are things that we are aware of and are working hard to address.”

Among those areas of improvement noted by the watchdog were performance against national access and treatment standards and numbers of staff completing their mandatory training and having an appraisal.

England’s Chief Inspector of Hospital’s, Professor Ted Baker, said: “There is a good standard of care at Guy’s and St Thomas’s NHS Foundation Trust – we rated it Outstanding for being caring and well-led.

“The only area that didn’t get at least a Good rating was in the safe category, but I expect with the leadership the trust now has that this area will improve in the future.”
