Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust rated as 'Outstanding' by the CQC

27th September 2018

Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) has been rated as 'Outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The trust has become the second community trust in the country to receive the rating.

Andrew Morgan, LCHS Chief Executive, said: “We are incredibly proud of our ‘Outstanding’ rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which recognises the pivotal role NHS community services are playing in Lincolnshire. LCHS has established itself with a clear purpose and sense of direction, delivering great care, close to home, which is underpinned by positive shared values and behaviours.

“This is driven by almost 2,000 outstanding staff working across the Trust, who are great at what they do. They show unwavering care, commitment and dedication, which can be seen in the numerous examples of outstanding practice identified by the CQC’s inspection team.

“This rating also rightly recognises our outstanding leaders, who support staff and create the right environment for them to do these great things.

“We will now be working to maintain this rating and make further improvements in those areas where we still strive to be better.”
