A health trust in Kent has been rated as "good" following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Kent Community Health NHS Trust runs wards at 12 community hospitals. It also treats people in their homes and at minor injury clinics.

A report released by the CQC following inspections in June said the trust was "well led" and staff were "caring".

However, it was criticised for not applying some procedures and policies consistently across the county.

Following the release of the report, chief executive Marion Dinwoodie, said: "This is excellent news and an endorsement of the hard work of everyone who works in the trust.

"Our staff can be very proud of this outcome. There are areas the CQC said we need to improve on, which were mainly about record-keeping, ensuring our policies are used consistently and continuing to recruit and retain staff."
