New bosses for failing hospital

Posted in: Medical Negligence 

After the Queen Elizabeth NHS Trust in King’s Lynn was put under a ‘special measures’ programme following the Keogh report, a new team has been installed to improve the hospital’s service. The hospital trust was deemed high risk for providing “poor care” in a report carried out earlier this year. A new chairman and chief executive have been recruited to oversee the much-needed improvements to management. The health regulator monitor has also appointed an experienced improvement director to manage the trust’s turnaround.

This intervention follows the worrying findings of the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which uncovered disturbingly poor patient care, while an NHS England report also revealed inadequate nurse staffing levels. It has also been found that the hospital trust has been in breach of its license over financial issues since April.

Stephen Hay from Monitor said: “We have been monitoring the performance of this trust for some time and it is clear that the current leadership of the trust is not the right one to bring about the changes needed.

Level of care that patients deserve 

The trusts chairman, Kate Gordon, has stepped down, being replaced by the current vice-chairman of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London, David Dean. Furthering this, Manjit Obhrai has been appointed chief executive following his success in the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust turnaround. David Hill has also taken up improvement director after leading the turnaround of neighbouring James Paget University Hospital in Great Yarmouth.

These improvements will allow the hospital to provide the level of care that its patients deserve.
