Community health services in Suffolk have been assessed as good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following a comprehensive inspection in May 2014.

Inspectors found patients of Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust, (which provides a range of health services for people across Cambridgeshire, Peterborough, Luton and Suffolk), were consistently treated with compassion, dignity and respect. Additionally patients were positive about the experience of receiving care from our services.

Matthew Winn, Chief Executive of the Trust said: “The Trust Board is delighted with the findings of the Care Quality Commission’s recent comprehensive inspection.

“Overall, the CQC assessed our services as good and found a wide range of evidence that showed how our dedicated staff consistency provided high quality care to patients.

“Inspectors also found many examples of very good patient focussed multi-disciplinary working, alongside initiatives to support people at home and avoid patients being admitted to hospital.”
