The Care Quality Commission has published a review of health services for Children Looked After and Safeguarding in Ealing.
The focus of the Review, which was undertaken in the week of the 12th March 2018, was on the experiences and outcomes for children within the geographical boundaries of the Ealing local authority area and reports on the performance of health providers serving the area including Clinical Commissioning Groups.
The CQC report did not provide a rating, but had made 20 recommendations for improvements in health organisations involved in the review.
Dr Mohini Parmar, Chair of Ealing CCG, said: The CQC report found lots of good practice and some of the feedback we received from young people and families was very rewarding, and we should be rightly proud of the services that we provide to children and families in the borough.”
“However, as you would expect there is always room for improvement and the CCG will now work with our partners to develop an action plan which needs to be submitted to the CQC within 20 working days from publication of the report.”
The action plan will be considered by the inspection team and progress will be followed up through CQC’s regional compliance team.
At a local level the Action Plan will be overseen by the CCGs Quality and Safety Committee and from a Multi-Agency perspective the report and Action Plan is scheduled to go to the H&WBB in September 2018.
