Care Quality Commission (CQC) reports and ratings

The Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and the Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust merged on the 1 April 2022 to become the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

The Trust is required to register with the Care Quality Commission and its current registration status is registered in full without conditions.

The CQC has published a report following inspections across medicine, surgery and diagnostics in November 2022 and a well-led inspection in May 2023.

This report collates both inspections and has resulted in the CQC giving the Trust an overall rating of ‘requires improvement’.
