In October 2021, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Care Quality Commission carried out an inspection of some of our services and as a result our overall Trust rating dropped from Good to Requires Improvement. We were very disappointed by the outcome of the inspection because our staff work hard every day to provide the best care they can to patients. However there are clearly some areas we need to improve and so we have not wasted any time in making many of the required changes and we will continue to use feedback from patients and our staff to inform how we deliver safe, high quality care and a positive experience for those we serve.


Care Quality Commission report - Sheffield Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS)

In April 2022, the Care Quality Commission undertook a monitoring visit as part of their statutory duty to monitor compliance against the Mental Health Act (1983) in the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). The visit covered three trusts - Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust, (SCH) Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (STH) and Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust (SHSC). Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust are the lead organisation for this visit but a number of the required actions resulting from the visit apply to all three Trusts and there are actions specifically required of our Trust.

The full report Care Quality Commission report can be read here.

Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust have submitted an action plan to address the key improvement points required and the latest version of the plan can be found here.
