BBC News: Norfolk and Suffolk health trust in special measures

Share

Nic Rigby of the BBC reports:

A mental health trust has become the first in England to be put in special measures.

NHS regulator Monitor will send a team to take over the management of Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.

The decision comes after the Care Quality Commission (CQC) reported that the trust was “not a safe, effective or responsive service”.

The BBC understands senior staff have been told of the decision by email and a public statement is expected later.

These external experts will work with the existing senior management team at the trust to resolve its problems.

An inspection by the CQC identified a number of serious issues, including concerns about the safety of services, staffing levels and leadership at the trust.

    A shame all this didn’t happen sooner to avoid so much human cost to patients, staff, and carers but at least and at last there is a glimmer of hope.
