January 2018


During October 2017 the Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected five core Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) service areas* previously rated by them as either inadequate or requires improvement. We are pleased to say that this inspection removed all ‘inadequate’ ratings and showed improvements in numerous areas. We received a ‘good’ rating for community health services for adults and a ‘requires improvement’ rating for the core mental health services inspected. Overall, the Trust was rated as ‘requires improvement’ for safe, effective, responsive and well led and ‘good’ for caring.

Dr Peter Miller, Chief Executive of LPT said: “We are pleased that our ratings are moving in the right direction and we have much to be proud of. Although our overall rating remains the same it is great to see no more ‘inadequate’ ratings; ten ratings have moved up, six of which have moved up to ‘good’. This is credit to our caring, committed staff, who have worked hard since the CQC’s previous inspection in November 2016, during what has been a financially challenging year. I am proud that the report highlights our staff are ‘kind, caring and respectful towards patients’, and that ‘most patients spoke positively about their care’.
