The Trust has been showcased in a national report published by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) looking at the state of care in England’s mental health services.
The report gives the most comprehensive picture ever of the quality of mental health provision and is based on findings from CQC’s programme of comprehensive inspections from 2014 to 2017.
Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LPFT) has been recognised for the outstanding services it provides to children and young people as well as overall improvements it made to the quality of services it delivers in Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire.
Dr John Brewin, Chief Executive said:
Over the last year or so, the Trust has significantly improved in terms of our leadership, how safe and responsive our services are and how satisfied our staff feel working for LPFT.
Lincolnshire doesn’t often get a mention nationally, so we are proud of the fact that the CQC has noticed positive changes at LPFT and showcased the Trust as an example of good practice in their report.
Other mental health trusts have contacted us to learn from our success and we hope that by sharing our experience we will be able to help ensure that everyone, no matter where they live, has access to quality mental health and learning disability support.”
