'Improve basic patient care' CQC tells 10 trusts

  • Comment

Urgent improvements going “right to the heart of basic patient care” are needed at 10 trusts, the Care Quality Commission has announced.

The regulator has registered a second wave of 214 trusts, but 10 of these must take further action to address concerns about the safety and quality of care.

Trusts that fail to meet registration standards by 1 April face sanctions such as fines and closure.

The following trusts have had conditions placed on their registration, meaning urgent improvements are needed:

  • Devon Partnership NHS Trust
  • Kent and Medway NHS and Social Care Partnership Trust
  • Luton and Dunstable Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust
  • Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • Scarborough and North East Yorkshire Healthcare NHS Trust
  • Surreyand Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
  • Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
  • West LondonMental Health NHS Trust
  • YorkshireAmbulance Service NHS Trust

CQC chair Jo Williams said: “In some cases our concerns go right to the heart of patient care and whether patients’ rights are being respected.”

This was particularly true of concerns related to detained mental health patients, she said.

Four mental health trusts have been registered with conditions.

At three of these trusts, conditions relate to people detained under the Mental Health Act, while other conditions relate to staff not being properly trained and supervised, buildings not being maintained and care not being planeed to suit people’s needs.

The announcement follows the first batch of registration decisions last week, when 64 trusts were registered. Registration for Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust and Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was conditional on them improving support for staff.

In total, 381 trusts in England will have to be registered. The final set of decisions will be announced next week.
