CQC wants you to share your experience of St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust

Published on: Tuesday, 04-August-2015

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England including hospitals, care homes, GP surgeries and other services. They monitor, inspect and regulate services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety and we publish what we find, including performance ratings to help people choose care.

The CQC Chief Inspector of Hospitals is inviting members of the public to tell his inspection panel what they think of the services provided by St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Their views and experiences will help inspectors decide what to look at when they inspect St Helens Hospital and Whiston Hospital in August 2015.

The Trust will be inspected and given an overall rating under a new method of inspection introduced by the Care Quality Commission. The formal inspection of the Trust will start on 18 August 2015.

To ensure the views of patients and the local community are properly heard, the inspectors will be holding a listening event in Knowsley on Tuesday, 11 August at 2pm at The Old School House, St. John Road, Huyton, L36 OUX.
