Our Care Quality Commission report

Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust, as a provider of healthcare services, is required under the Health and Social Care Act 2008 to be registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The CQC’s role is to make sure that health and social care services provide people with safe, effective, compassionate, high-quality care and to encourage them to improve. To maintain our registration, we must meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.

We were inspected by the CQC in June 2014 against these standards and were rated ‘good’ overall. You can see here the ratings given to each of our core services in each on the CQC’s five domains:

You can read more about the registration of our services and inspections on the CQC website, where you can also read our full inspection report, which was published in September 2014. Since the inspection, we have made changes to the areas recommended by the CQC for improvement.
