Our Story

The Outstanding Society was the idea of Camilla Trimble who owned a Care Home in Dorset.

Having achieved an Outstanding CQC rating Camilla identified other like minded ‘Outstanding’ providers to promote sharing best practice within adult social care throughout England. The core team was formed of Camilla Trimble, James Rycroft, Russell Leese and Zoe Fry.

There have been several conferences since the Society’s formation (please see our Gallery page) and we have been extremely honoured to have welcomed the following speakers.

  • Professor Martin Green OBE – Chief Executive of Care England
  • Andrea Sutcliffe CBE – former CQC Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care and now Chief Executive of the Nursing and Midwifery Council
  • Kate Terroni – CQC Chief Inspector of Adult Social Care.
  • Sharon Allen OBE – CEO Skills for Care 2010-2019
  • Avnish Goyal – Chair Care England
  • Rob Hargreaves – Skills for Care Information Service Manager
  • Alex Ramamurthy – Founder/CEO at Mirthy
  • Wendy Mitchell – Author of ‘Someone I used to know’

The Society wishes to thank both Camilla Trimble and James Rycroft for their commitment during their time as ‘Core Members’. Both are no longer involved with the Society, due to work and other commitments, but we would like to acknowledge the the immense contribution they have made.

Like most Health Care Professionals Zoe Fry & Russell Leese’s time during the early months of COVID meant that the Outstanding Society ‘hibernated’ but throughout they continued to explore ways of developing the group and attend virtual Trade Association meetings with the Care Quality Commission.

The Society welcomes all Outstanding providers to become members giving them access to a dedicated members area.

However all providers are encouraged to utilize the free resources outside of this area as the Society evolves.
