“Mary, I wanted to thank you for all that you have done for the division. I really don’t think we would be where we are now if it hadn’t been for you. I am so proud of the teams as they were so positive when the CQC came, and the feedback I was getting from them was fantastic, they really wanted to showcase their work.” Head of Nursing, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
This pre CQC re-inspection I found very useful. I have a totally different outlook on my ward now and manage things in a different way. Fresh eyes have brought to my attention things that may not have been on my radar at this time. I feel much more ready for the official inspection and judging by the things we now have in place, I feel more confident that we will not be having an inadequate inspection. I found Mary very supportive when she came to see me. Mary allowed me to go through all the points and explain for myself the problems they had found. I was very upset with the results of the initial inspection but I feel I have been able to turn the negative very much into a positive and thank Mary for her time and effort. Ward Manager, Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
