In September 2018, the national regulator for all healthcare providers in England, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), published its report into the care provided by Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (MCHFT).
The report, which was compiled following a comprehensive inspection undertaken by the CQC in March 2018 gave MCHFT an overall rating of “Good.” Only a small number of acute hospital Trusts in England have been provided with this rating, meaning that MCHFT’s hospitals are amongst the highest rated in the country.
As part of the inspection, the CQC spoke to patients, visitors, carers, staff and the public to hear about their experiences of the Trust, with the vast majority of feedback being positive. Inspectors also sought the views of other NHS organisations and partners including the local Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS England, Health Education England, the General Medical Council, the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Royal Colleges and the local Healthwatch team.
