  • All core services are 'good' or 'outstanding'

All core services now rated ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ and Community Services as a whole now ‘outstanding’.

The Trust also maintained its ‘Outstanding’ rating for providing ‘Caring’ services overall.

The ‘Caring’ domain is scored by how well staff involve and treat people with compassion, kindness, dignity and respect.

All services inspected increased their rating when compared to the previous report in 2016.

Surgery and Community Services are now both ‘Outstanding’ overall.

Services for Children and Young People, Community Health Inpatient Services (Trinity Ward at Ripon Community Hospital) and Urgent care (Minor Injury Units in Ripon and Selby) are now each ‘Good’ overall.

The newly ‘Outstanding’ services join Critical Care, Outpatients and Diagnostics, Community Health Services for Adults and Community Dental Services, who maintain their ‘Outstanding’ rating.

Each of the other Trust services have maintained their ‘Good’ rating.

Dr Ros Tolcher, Chief Executive of Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust, said:

“It is fantastic news that all of our core services are now rating ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission. This is testament to the hard work, expertise and dedication of colleagues across the Trust, both at Harrogate District Hospital and in our Community Services.

“Our Trust values of ‘Respectful, Responsible and Passionate’ shine through in the CQC’s report. Thank you to all staff who, each and every day, provide first class care for patients and service users. This report reflects our professional, caring workforce.

“A small number of areas where improvements are required have been highlighted, and we welcome the CQC’s findings. We are committed to continuous learning and improvement and we have an action plan in place to address these points.

“I am particularly pleased to receive such a positive report in my final month at the Trust before retirement on 31 March. It has been one big team effort to achieve these results and I cannot thank colleagues across the Trust enough for their unwavering commitment to delivering the very best care possible to our patients and the people using our services.”

The report, based on a visit in November 2018, can be downloaded from the CQC’s website here: https://www.cqc.org.uk/provider/RCD.
