Shelford Group member University College London Hospitals (UCLH) has been rated ‘Good’ by the Care Quality Commission in their latest inspection report.

 

The CQC, which inspected UCLH in March 2016, highlighted the way staff cared for patients with “compassion, dignity and respect”, as well as the “clear vision and ambition for specialised care and research”.

 

The trust’s local leadership in critical care was deemed to be outstanding, and the CQC praised UCLH for their outstanding practice in maternity and gynaecology’s diagnosis and treatment facilities. Innovation at the trust was also highlighted for praise, with staff being actively involved in a range of initiatives to improve patient care and experience.

 

UCLH Chief Executive, Sir Robert Naylor, said he was “extremely proud of our highly committed teams who received overwhelming praise from the inspectors for the compassion, dignity and respect with which they treat and care for our patients”. The trust will continue to make improvements in areas identified by the CQC, such as in urgent and emergency care, as part of their continuing goal of delivering the highest standards of patient care, education and research.
