Care Quality Commission (CQC)

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. The CQC makes sure health and social care service providers – such as The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch NHS Foundation Trust – offer people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care. They carry out regular inspections and provide reports on the care and the progress since their previous report.

The CQC visited both the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and Christchurch Hospital in October and November 2015 - in a series of announced and unannounced inspections by over 50 inspectors. They also asked the Trust to provide a lot of information both before and after their inspections.

You can read about the results of the latest inspection here, or view the documents below.
