Our current CQC rating

Graphic showing CQC rating



The Care Quality Commission (CQC) in February 2018 rated three of out of four core services at Croydon Health Services NHS Trust as ‘Good’ following a routine inspection.

The unannounced inspection carried out during October and November 2017 focused on surgery, critical care, end of life care and outpatients at both Croydon University Hospital and Purley War Memorial Hospital. 

The inspectors found there had been improvements in surgery, end of life care and outpatients, raising the rating from ‘Requires Improvement’ to ‘Good’ in all three services. The CQC rated critical care as “Requires Improvement.”

Overall the Trust was rated as ‘Requires Improvement’ – the same as its last inspection in June 2015.
