The Trust is licensed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to provide services for the people of Croydon under the new regulating standards in the NHS. 

There are no conditions attached to the license, but the Trust is not complacent and will ensure that the standards are maintained and improved in future years. These standards go right to the very heart of what local people want - high quality, safe and
compassionate care. They cover the issues patients expect such as treating
people with respect, involving them in decisions about their care and

As a trust we are committed to doing all we can to meet those expectations.

How the Trust is doing

The Trust is waiting for a visit under the new Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection regime. Results will be published here once they are available.

The last unannounced inspection by the CQC found no evidence that the Trust breached the Hygiene Code regulations, which protect patients, workers and others from the risks of acquiring a healthcare-associated infection.

Rates of MRSA and Clostridium difficile (C.diff) are low. Infection rates are monitored daily and reported to the Board every month. Current rates can be found on the infection control pages on this website.  

Mortality rates remain consistently within expected ranges, but the Trust aims to reduce rates by 10% with the introduction of the Global Trigger Tool for patient safety and improved clinical coding and investigation.

The Trust has achieved NHS Litigation Authority level one risk management standards for acute services and level two under the Clinical Negligence Scheme for maternity services.

The Trust’s performance in the national patient surveys has improved slightly year on year but when compared to other Trusts, the organisation does not perform as well as its peers. These surveys reflect users’ views and patient experience and this is an area that the Trust is addressing through its five promises to the people of Croydon.
