England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals has rated Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (one of the Salford Together partners) as Good following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission. This inspection included child and adolescent mental health wards and wards for older people which had previously been rated as requires improvement.
CQC also inspected acute wards for adults of working age and psychiatric intensive care units; long stay/rehabilitation mental health wards for working age adults and substance misuse services. CQC also looked specifically at management and leadership to answer the key question: Is the trust well led?
The service was rated as Requires Improvement for safety, Good for caring, effectiveness and responsiveness and Outstanding for well-led. As a result of this inspection, the trust’s overall rating remains unchanged as Good.
