    The Care Quality Commission (CQC) conducted a focused inspection of Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust during January and February 2018. This inspection visit was preceded by data collection and analysis. The inspection reports for the Trust were published on the CQC website in May 2018. A Quality Summit was held on 06 July 2018 to present the final reports to regulators, commissioners and stakeholders. 

    The Trust received an overall rating of Requires Improvement. 

    In response, the Trust has developed a Quality Improvement Action Plan to address all the requirements and recommendations contained within the CQC inspection reports. The full and detailed Quality Improvement Action Plan will be tracked through the Trust's integrated quality management system and monitored through the Trust's governance framework, as detailed on the next page. The Trust has grouped actions together by domain. A Quality Improvement Summary Action Plan, which you can download on this page, provides details of those domains, the critical actions forming the planned improvement work and the measures for monitoring achievement.
