We Are Recruiting
NCH&C has an “outstanding” CQC rating for its care - the first standalone NHS community trust in England to achieve this.
In its report into services provided by NCH&C, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated the trust overall as “outstanding” with an “outstanding” rating being achieved in two of the five regulatory criteria: delivering care; and being a well-led trust. The CQC highlights a number of areas of outstanding practice at the Trust, such as:
- The care and consideration shown to patients by staff. All multidisciplinary staff
were observed to be courteous, professional and kind when interacting with patients. Patient feedback was consistently positive
- Strong collaboration, team working and support across all services with the patient as prime focus and common aim to improve the quality and sustainability of care
- Compassionate, inclusive and effective leadership at all levels
The report said: “On all the units we visited, staff were caring and compassionate towards patients. Staff treated patients with kindness, dignity and respect. We found that staff were sensitive to the needs of the patients and their families.”
“The trust had clear strategic objectives that aligned with the vision and values of the organisation and the wider economy plan. The strategic objectives ensured focus on quality of care to patients, development of staff to provide care and future sustainability of services.”
NCH&C staff work incredibly hard to bring our expert care to people in their communities, whether this is close to where they live and work, in our community hospitals, within GP surgeries or in people’s homes. The results of this report show that through strong collaboration, team working and support across all services we are delivering excellent and effective services to people living in Norfolk.
We are very grateful to our staff for the efforts they make every day to deliver the best possible care to patients. The CQC report is a reminder that all of us at NCH&C have much to be proud of.
Whether you’re from the UK, mainland Europe or beyond, joining NCH&C will enable you to contribute your skills, knowledge and experience to providing safe and compassionate care for our patients in the community.
