Our Current CQC Rating

CQC summary Following the latest inspection the CQC the Trust remains at “requires improvement.”

The CQC most recently inspected our medical care and community services in July 2018 and has given both overall ratings of “requires improvement”. All our services were rated as “good” on caring and both medical care and community health services for adults were also judged “good” on being effective.

When combined with the previous inspection last year, the latest report also means seven out of the nine of the core services inspected at Croydon University Hospital are now rated as “good”.
