Press release posted 11 May 2023
The Christie NHS Foundation Trust has been rated good by health regulator the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an inspection of its acute medical services in October and a well-led inspection in November 2022.
The CQC report released today said that The Christie was ‘focused on providing the best experience and a high standard of care to people’.
The CQC also praised the Trust’s staff who they said ‘treated people with compassion and kindness, respected their privacy and dignity and met people’s individual needs. They also provided emotional support to people, families and carers. They advised them on how to lead healthier lives, supported patients to make decisions about their care, and made sure they had access to good information.
Roger Spencer, Chief Executive of The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, said: “We are pleased that the CQC has rated us good despite the difficulties the NHS has faced over the past few years. Demand for cancer services has continued to rise resulting in us treating more patients than ever before.
“We are working hard to make the improvements that have been highlighted by the CQC, ensuring that all our staff feel supported and valued and I thank all of them for continuing to put patients at the centre of everything we do.”
