    The Care Quality Commission has told a mental health trust that provides care in Sussex and parts of Kent to improve.

    The CQC has found that the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust “requires improvement” after they were inspected in January, reports the BBC. 

    This is due to concerns over cleanliness and their failure to produce a plan which could tackle the high suicide rate in the area.

    Colm Donaghy, who is the trust’s chief executive, said: “It’s difficult when there’s criticism of leadership. You shouldn’t take it personally, but you should take it really seriously.”

    Dr Paul Lelliott, CQC’s deputy chief inspector of hospitals, said there had been “considerable variation” in the quality of the services provided by the trust. He said: “While most community-based services were good, some areas of care in learning disability and older people’s inpatient services were inadequate. These services require urgent attention to bring them up to acceptable standards.”
