Care Quality Commission Inspection

CQC Report

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) quality report for The Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (RJAH) was published on 21 February 2019.

The report follows a comprehensive inspection by the CQC in November and December 2018, during which they assessed all of the Trust’s services.

The CQC rates services by classifying them as Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement or Inadequate against five criteria including whether services are safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

RJAH has been rated as 'Good' overall by the CQC and 'Outstanding' for caring.
