HOSPITAL bosses say next month’s inspection will be a chance to demonstrate improvements made in the past 18 months.
The Care Quality Commission rated Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust as “requires improvement” in February 2015.
Children’s services were branded inadequate, nine other areas were said to require improvement and three were rated good.
Chief executive Louise Barnett said: “All areas that were previously rated inadequate or requires improvement will be re-inspected.
“This will provide us with the opportunity to showcase the improvements that we have made since the original inspection.”
The three-day CQC inspection will take place from September 27.
Meanwhile, more than 70 staff have signed up to be Pride Makers at the hospital, under a scheme launched in June.
They will work with chief nurse Tracey McErlain-Burns to help improve the organisation.
A spokesman added: “The trust is aiming to identify 150 Pride Makers to inspire the will for continuous quality improvement consistent with the trust achieving its vision to be outstanding.”
