The Care Quality Commission has today published its report following an inspection of five of our services and a review of our leadership earlier this year.
The positive comments made by the CQC’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Professor Ted Baker are a real tribute to our staff. He said that “children were at the centre of the service at Alder Hey and we saw examples of the highest quality of care”. Ted Baker also commented that “parents we met told us their children were treated with dignity and respect and had all their needs met by kind and caring staff who are truly outstanding.”
In response to the findings of the report, Alder Hey’s Chief Executive, Louise Shepherd said: “The CQC has recognised the outstanding work that happens here every day at Alder Hey, which was strongly endorsed by the children, young people and families they spoke to. We are delighted that Alder Hey’s official overall rating remains ‘good’ with ‘outstanding’ for caring. This is a clear testament to the unstinting commitment of our fantastic staff, who are driven by a shared vision to do the very best for the children and young people we serve.”
The CQC highlighted many examples of outstanding care and innovation drawn from across every service inspected. There were some key areas for improvement within the report, which were addressed at the time of the inspection. The report contains a range of additional recommendations which the Trust will action over the coming months.
