The trust received an overall rating of ‘Good’ for each of its services including urgent and emergency care and received ‘Outstanding’ in some areas of practice for its end of life care and critical care.
Our decision follows a recent inspection by the Care Quality Commission and a recommendation from the Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Sir Mike Richards, that the trust is taken out of special measures.
The trust, which is one of the largest hospitals in the UK, provides healthcare services for people in Cambridge, Essex, Suffolk and Hertfordshire.
This is fantastic news and recognises the hard work of staff at all levels of the organisation who can be proud of their achievement.
The trust has worked hard to improve the care it provides to its local community and has introduced innovative practice in order to meet the rising demand on its services.
We will continue to support the trust as it seeks to build on the excellent progress it has made on behalf of its patients.
