The consultation sought views on including a trust’s financial resources for calculating the overall rating a trust receives. Mind strongly disagrees with this approach and that of including financial resources as a key line of enquiry as the focus of any trust and provider of healthcare should be the quality of care it is delivering. Making financial resources as equal a focus as safety, responsiveness and how caring a provider is may undermine the quality of care the provider is expected to deliver. While productive use of resources must be something that trusts ensure they’re doing well, it should not be part of the key questions an inspection is seeking answers to.Public Mental Health
