Julie Dawes, Interim Chief Executive, said:
“We welcome the CQC’s report which has recognised we have made notable improvements after our concerted efforts to make care better for patients. This report gives us additional confidence that we are taking the right approach to improving our services.
“I thank all our staff for their continued dedication to providing the best possible care to the people we support.
“We are not complacent and fully accept that we have more work to do. We have clear plans in place to improve each area that the CQC has highlighted.
“The trust board has also recently appointed a new substantive Chair, new Non-Executive Directors, and is in the process of appointing a substantive Chief Executive. This fresh and strengthened board will bring the leadership required to build on the progress described in the CQC’s findings today.”
