SASH is ranked band 6, meaning the CQC having no concerns about the safety, quality and effectiveness of our care.
The CQC have taken the results of their ‘intelligent monitoring’ and grouped the 161 acute NHS trusts into six bands based on the risk that people might not be receiving safe, effective, high quality care – with band 1 being the highest risk and band 6 the lowest.
We are not complacent, however, and we know there is always more we can do, but together with the findings of the CQC’s unannounced inspection in February – where we were compliant in every domain – you start to build a picture of a trust that is performing well.
SASH was one of only six non-foundation trust organisations to achieve the highest score (band 6).
