Healthskills is delighted to congratulate leaders at Chelsea and Westminster NHS FT for their latest Care Quality Commission (CQC) ratings, which show that the Trust is well-led, and offers safe, caring, responsive and effective services. For Well-Led, the CQC rated the Trust as ‘Outstanding’. Inspectors highlighted that the Trust is an organisation with a clear vision for what it wants to achieve, which has been developed with staff, patients, and key groups representing the local community. The Trust has been commended for having a leading role in the development and improvement of services across North West London. Inspectors found there was a ‘no blame’ culture and mistakes were regarded as opportunities for learning and improvement.
Healthskills has been collaborating ChelWest since 2016, with our co-designed and facilitated multi-professional ‘Established Leaders’ development programme, supporting over 150 senior clinical and non-clinical leaders, to develop consistent leadership behaviours, aligned to Trust strategic priorities and with a quality improvement project focus.
