George Eliot Hospital Trust

George Eliot’s mortality reporting ‘unsatisfactory’ says Keogh review 

  • Comment

George Eliot Hospital Trust must address concerns around its “unsatisfactory” reporting of quality and mortality and around patient safety, Sir Bruce Keogh’s mortality rates review team has said.

The NHS England medical director’s review, published today, highlighted areas which required improvement and said it was not clear “that there is sufficient focus on quality and patient safety” in the trust.

The review team’s report on the trust said an action plan was agreed at the risk summit addressing the first seven of the urgent priority actions and plans for a further three were being drawn up.

It praised the trust’s “engaged, passionate and loyal staff” and said it was “clearly supported by the local public”.

Trust chief executive chief executive Kevin McGee said: “What is clear from this review is that while we are on the right track to improving mortality rates, we need to increase the pace of change and as a small trust, we welcome any support to help us achieve this.

“We are fully committed to addressing all the recommendations raised in the review and continuing to develop a clinically sustainable safe model of care that meets the needs of local people now and into the future.”
