How we comply

There are many different ways to assess the quality of healthcare provided in NHS hospitals. These can help patients make an informed choice about where they would like to be treated.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England.

The CQC visited GOSH in January and early February 2018 as part of its rolling schedule of inspections.

The CQC’s inspection report available on the CQC website was published in April 2018 and overall rated the Trust as ‘good’.
