Exclusive: CQC ratings analysed and mapped

HSJ has analysed all trust ratings issued by the Care Quality Commission to date. Our research has found a strong alignment between the regulator’s ratings and other indicators, such as staff and patient survey results and mortality indicators. Explore the charts below to see how differently rated trusts compared.

We have also produced an exclusive map showing the distribution of “outstanding”, “good”, “requires improvement” and “inadequate” trusts across the country.

Contact Will Hazell if you want to comment on the map and charts.
