Healthwatch Lancashire is working in partnership with University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust (UHMBT) by participating in mock Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspections.

Members of the Healthwatch Lancashire staff team are taking part in mock CQC inspections at Furness General Hospital this week along with governors, non-executive directors, senior managers and directors, to ensure services are up to scratch.

Gill Brown, Healthwatch Lancashire Chief Executive, said: “Taking part in the mock inspections at Furness General Hospital demonstrates our role to work in partnership with health and social care services to ensure the patient voice has been heard and acted upon by those who manage, run and regulate services in Lancashire.”
