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 Camilla Trimble for her commitment in setting up the OS back in 2014. Camilla is no longer involved with the Society, but we would like to acknowledge the immense contribution she made.

Like most Health Care Professionals 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.

In 2021 we formed the OS into a Community Interest Company and in 2022 welcomed new Directors to the Board.

Since April 2021 we have held virtual monthly meetings with some fantastic key note speakers.

The Society welcomes all providers to sign up to be a member and encourages Outstanding Providers to become Contributors  to the OS.
