The local hospice, based in Crawley and providing services in Sussex and Surrey received the rating after a team of inspectors visited to assess.

Giles Tomsett, Chief Executive of St Catherine’s, said: “This is a fantastic result for St Catherine’s and more importantly, a fantastic result for the people we care for. We’re proud and privileged to provide end of life care to support this community. We receive tremendous support in return. We couldn’t do our work without local people and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helps make St Catherine’s so special; our volunteers, staff, fellow healthcare professionals and supporters. Each of you helps us to deliver the outstanding care that the CQC has recognised.”
