How we are rated

England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals, the Care Quality Commission (CQC), has rated Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust as Good.

The CQC is an independent organisation which regulates health and social care services. A team of inspectors visited the Trust from January to February 2019 to check the quality of our:

  • mental health crisis services
  • health-based places of safety
  • forensic inpatient / secure wards
  • wards for older people with mental health problems

All are now rated as 'Good', and the Trust's services have been rated as 'Outstanding' for caring. This maintains the rating previously given by the CQC following its last inspection.


Our services at Avenida Lodge and Lindridge Care Home are inspected separately. Their ratings and individual reports are below.
