CQC gives vote of confidence in Derbyshire Healthcare through risk ratings assessment

Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has received a vote of confidence from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for the second consecutive year after being named as one of only 11 mental health providers in England most likely to be providing good or satisfactory care to patients.

Derbyshire Healthcare – an integrated community health trust providing services to children and families, people with learning disabilities, people experiencing mental health problems and people with substance misuse needs – has been classified as one of 11 ‘band four’ organisations posing the ‘lowest perceived risk’ of providing poor care as part of the CQC’s ‘intelligent monitoring’ of NHS trusts that deliver mental health services.

The monitoring involved the CQC analysing 64 different sources of evidence, including bed occupancy rates and staff and patient surveys. The CQC collects this evidence to help plan its inspection activities and to show the NHS and the public how it works and where it could have concerns in these topics.

The CQC's intelligent monitoring report found absolutely no ‘evidence of risk’ or ‘elevated risks’ for all 64 key performance indicators that Derbyshire Healthcare is measured against.
