Community healthcare services in Lincolnshire have been given a clean bill of health following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

The CQC published results of inspections into community nursing services provided by Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust (LCHS) – such as nurses who provide home care across Boston.
The inspections, which took place on February 18 and 19, found the trust is met all standards relating to the quality and provision of its services.

Inspectors found ‘good evidence’ that patients and relatives were involved in planning care and said nurses spoke with confidence and knowledge about meeting in the best interests of the patients.

Sue Cousland, Chief Nurse at LCHS, said: “We are delighted with these two reports, which we hope demonstrates our continued commitment to providing quality healthcare in our communities.”
