Care Quality Commission – NHS Foundation Trust (CHFT) Inspection

In March 2016 the Care Quality Commission will be inspecting Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent health and adult social care regulator. Their job is to check whether hospitals, care homes, GPs, dentists and services in your home are meeting national standards.

The CQC look at a lot of information to help them design their inspections and your experiences of care, and those of your family and friends, help them to decide what they need to look at during the inspection.

If you have used Calderdale and Huddersfield Foundation Trust Hospital and Community services in the last year it is important that you provide feedback.
