Care Quality Commission lifts Stafford Hospital concerns

The Care Quality Commission has lifted all of its concerns around Stafford Hospital today.

This comes after a number of visits to the hospital on 19th and 20th June this year.

“We have been confident for some time that we had made all the improvements which were needed. We are very pleased that the CQC team was able to come in and check for themselves, so that these improvements could be recognised officially.

“All credit goes to our staff who have worked hard to make these changes; this will be a real boost to staff morale and will encourage staff to continue to improve the care we provide for patients. We are not complacent, we know that we still don’t get it right every time for every patient but this report is confirmation that we are definitely well on the way."

– Lyn Hill-Tout, Chief Executive
