CPFT response into CQC report on "unsafe staffing levels"

You may have read in the media over the past few days a report put out by the Care Quality Commission in which it listed a number of NHS Trusts failing to operate with adequate staffing levels - CPFT's Cavell Centre in Peterborough was one of the Trusts listed.

The report into staffing levels carried out by the CQC is more than two years old. Since then CPFT has been regularly inspected on staffing levels and the Trust was found compliant at all of these inspections.

In its most recent inspection, which took place just last month (12 December), the CQC found The Cavell Centre compliant in the area of staffing levels.

Specifically, the report – which is published today (14 January 2013) – stated that there were ‘enough qualified, skilled and experienced staff to meet people’s needs’. The report states that ‘recent recruitment had resolved the issue’, concluding: “Staff had the skills, knowledge and experience to offer appropriate care to people...(staff had) completed a wide range of training so that they were equipped to carry out their role.”
