A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust said:
“We accept the findings of the CQC’s recent inspections at our Trust and are committed to making the changes and improvements that our service users deserve.
“Work is already underway in order to build better and more sustainable services. Our Single Improvement Plan incorporates a range of immediate actions identified in recent weeks, alongside various longer-term ambitions. Furthermore, our enrolment in the NHS England Recovery Support Programme will provide us with access to additional expertise and resource to ensure that sustainable improvements are made as quickly as possible.
"We are pleased that the CQC did find that a number of our key services, including our mental health crisis services and health-based places of safety, demonstrate good care and management. Going forward, we are determined to build upon these areas of best practice.”
