The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has rated our NHS 111 services, GP Led Out of Hours services along with the Walk in Centres and GP Led Health Centres across the South, South East and East of England, as Good, in a series of reports published today

Commenting, Yvonne Taylor, Chief Executive of IC24 said:

“We are delighted to have been given such a positive rating by the CQC. I am proud of our loyal and committed workforce who provide high quality services for our patients across our localities and this report highlights these efforts.

It’s great to see our collaborative approach to working with other stakeholders, in particular with The UK Sepsis Trust, has been acknowledged as ‘outstanding’ by the CQC. 

Our services are no exception to the pressures that all healthcare services are under across the country and to receive such a positive rating is something that the whole organisation can be proud of.”
