Response to CQC report

Response to a CQC report on South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust’s acute wards and psychiatric intensive care units

A spokesperson from South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust said:

“We welcome the CQC’s findings that our acute wards for adults of working age and psychiatric intensive care units have improved so they are now rated ‘good’ for being caring and responsive. Due to the hard work of our staff, this means that the trust has no 'inadequate' ratings.

“We work constantly to improve our care and the CQC has outlined areas that we need to improve. Our Clinical Director and Service Director are using the report to work with staff to embed the many improvements already underway.

“Our priority is safe and compassionate care and our focus is on supporting our staff to be able to prevent and to de-escalate incidents. We are paying particular attention to understanding the use of restraint in our services so that we can improve the experience and safety for people who use services.

“The CQC’s report today provides us with an agenda for making these necessary improvements. We are developing an action plan which we will submit to the CQC at the end of May.”
