About us Care Quality Commission Care Quality Commission The Care Quality Commission carried out a routine inspection of Katharine House Hospice in June 2017. The results of the inspection can be read in their report, for which there is a link below. A message from our Chief Executive, Angharad Orchard: "We're proud of our excellent reputation for providing support to people facing life-limiting illness in our community, and we are pleased that the Care Quality Commission has acknowledged the high quality care we provide to patients and their families and carers. We have always put our patients at the forefront of our services, ensuring that every individual is cared for with respect and dignity, and made to feel as comfortable as possible right up until their last moments. Going forward, we will expand our services to ensure we can support more people in more parts of our community, so that everyone facing a life-limiting illness can have access to the high quality care they need whether in our hospice, in the hospital or a care home, or in their own homes."
