NHS hospitals trust for Stamford 'requires improvement'

The NHS trust which runs Stamford and Rutland Hospital has been told by health watchdog inspectors it 'requires improvement'.

Stamford and Rutland Hospital

Several concerns have been raised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), including the number of qualified, competent and experienced staff at the North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust.

CQC inspectors visited the hospitals between 30 July and 13 September and said a number of services "had deteriorated" since their last visit in 2018.

The report said the trust needed to ensure it had enough suitably qualified, competent, skilled and experienced staff.

It also said clear and up-to-date patient records, including resuscitation information in end-of-life care, should be better maintained.

Caroline Walker, the trust's chief executive, said the rating was "disappointing".

Mrs Walker said the trust would use the report "as a good source of information to progress our continuous improvement".

The trust also runs the Peterborough City and Hinchingbrooke hospitals in Cambridgeshire.
