Regulation and Inspections
Care Quality Commission
As a healthcare provider, we are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The CQC consider Wiltshire Health and Care to be a ‘Good’ provider under their inspection regime.
Wiltshire Health and Care is an NHS-Controlled Provider. This means we are a provider of NHS services that is entirely under the control of NHS bodies (our three partners – Great Western Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust, and Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust).
As an NHS-controlled provider, we are regulated by NHS Improvement, and our Board is required to complete an annual Corporate Governance Statement, confirming that Wiltshire Health and Care is compliant with Condition CP1 of its Licence (that is to say that sound corporate governance is in place, and the Board anticipates continued compliance for the remainder of the financial year.
The framework of oversight for NHS-Controlled Providers can be accessed by clicking here. The Licence conditions are detailed in Appendix A.
We publish monthly, on each ward, information about the number of staff.
This includes the number of nurses and support workers per shift, together with the percentage of shifts meeting safe staffing guidelines.
The aim is to provide an open and transparent picture of local staffing levels for patients, families and members of the public. We have systems in place to ensure we have enough of the right people in the right places at the right time.
Wiltshire Health and Care has six Community Hospitals (Chippenham, Devizes, Melksham, Savernake, Trowbridge and Warminster).
Our information on Safer Staffing is presented in a number of ways:
- Display boards in all of our wards show the planned and actual staffing levels at the start of every shift
- The Bi-annual Staffing Review – this report provides information on the actual number of staff on each ward, compared to planned staffing numbers, highlights areas where staffing needs to be improved and explains what we plan to do
- SDCS – you can view detailed information on staffing levels on the online national single storage system for NHS data, which is called SDCS
Staffing data is presented alongside other safety measures on NHS Choices.
