Nottingham University Hospitals gets ‘Good’ and ‘Outstanding’ ratings from CQC

Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust (NUH) – which includes Nottingham City Hospital, Queen’s Medical Centre, Ropewalk House and services run from the National Centre for Sports and Exercise Medicine at Loughborough University – was rated ‘Outstanding’ for Caring and ‘Good’ in the Well-Led, Effective and Responsive domains, as well as Overall. In the CQC’s words: “Feedback from people who use the services was continually positive and there is a strong, visible person-centred culture.” The Report goes on to say that: “Staff were motivated and inspired to deliver care that was kind and promoted dignity, were consistently compassionate about patient care and strived to go ‘above and beyond’.”

New care home and housing in Nottingham village approved

Rayner Davies Architects have received outline planning permission for 12 new houses and a 64-bed residential care home on the site of the Eden Lodge Care Home in Bestwood Village Nottingham. The proposals were unanimously approved by Gedling Planning Committee. The proposals show the demolition of the existing care home to allow for the construction of three and four-bedroom houses and a new state of the art care facility which will include a cinema, hairdresser and café.

Nottinghamshire care home rated Outstanding

Wren Hall Nursing Home in Selston has been rated Outstanding by the CQC. The home, which was rated Outstanding for being Caring, Responsive and Well-led, provides accommodation for 53 people, some of whom are living with dementia.

Rob Assall-Marsden, CQC’s Head of Inspection for Adult Social Care in the central region, said: “Staff developed exceptionally kind, positive and compassionate relationships with people. They demonstrated person centred values, which placed an emphasis on respect for the individual being supported.

People’s care was individualised, staff put them first and knew them really well. Without exception, people, visitors, staff and professionals were overwhelmingly positive about the leadership of the service. They felt that the reason for the consistent high quality of service came from the proactive and positive leadership which filtered down to all of the staff. Care was personalised, staff knew about people’s lives, their families and what they enjoyed doing. There was a wide variety of activities for people to participate in both within and outside of the service. People’s care plans were very detailed and written in a person-centred way. Relatives were actively involved in decisions about their relations care.”

Well done Wren Hall!
