The Shelford Group congratulates all of the staff at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals Foundation Trust (NUTH) for their “outstanding” rating by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The trust becomes the first teaching hospital in the country to be rated at the highest level, and only the fifth organisation overall.

The trust was rated outstanding for caring, effectiveness, responsiveness, and being well-led, and received a ‘good’ rating for safety. NUTH’s Chief Executive, Sir Leonard Fenwick CBE, told staff the rating was a testament to their work. Sir Leonard has run NUTH and its predecessor organisations for 38 years, and is the NHS’s longest serving chief executive.

NUTH’s Bone Marrow Transplant Unit was mentioned on numerous occasions in the CQC’s report as an example of outstanding practice. It highlighted the work of the staff to help patients and their families through their innovative treatment processes and to provide high-quality care.
