The Board of Trustees was pleased to welcome the CQC for their recent inspection of LIVES. However, we were disappointed to receive their rating of ‘requires improvement’.
There are a small number of regulatory matters where we know we can do better, and steps have already been taken to rectify these. We will continue to work with Chief Executive Nikki Cooke and the leadership team, who have our full support, to address the findings and look forward to welcoming the CQC back for future inspections.
We were also disappointed to learn that a small number of people appear to be seeking to undermine the enormous contribution that our charity and volunteers make to the people of Lincolnshire by setting up a petition calling for Nikki’s resignation.
Nikki was appointed as the charity’s first Chief Executive in 2016. Since then, the organisation has gone from strength to strength, providing the highest level of care to thousands of people every year and saving hundreds of lives.
We remain focused on growing the impact that our charity makes and helping patients and their families within our local communities, during a time when they need it most.
