The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator for health and social care in England. It makes sure services such as hospitals, care homes, dentists and GP surgeries provide safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care, and encourages these services to improve and maintain essential standards.
We were inspected in March 2017, and the CQC gave the Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability a good rating.
In July 2018, as part of the new style CQC inspection process, an unannounced inspection focusing on long-term care took place.
As the inspection was targeted on one area of the hospital no new overall rating was issued and the CQC inspectors highlighted that all of their findings from the full inspection in 2017 had been completed.
