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.
Here’s how you can do this:
Market Stall Events – Mon 29th Feb & Tuesday 1st March 2016: Patients and families who have used the Trust acute or community services can come to meet CQC Inspectors.
– Mon 29th February – 11am – 2pm – Calderdale Royal Hospital main entrance
– Tues 1st March – 11am – 2pm – Huddersfield Royal Infirmary main entrance
The CQC are keen to speak to people at the Trust Stalls and to hear their experiences. But if members of the public are unable to attend or don’t want to they can still share their experience in the following ways:
