The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has responded to the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) report, and the recommendations are being worked on as a matter of urgency. An improvement programme is underway, and progress against this is being reported monthly to the CQC. CQC inspectors are attending the trust’s clinical boards, committees, patient safety groups, and board meetings. Trust staff also attend a monthly quality improvement board with other stakeholders, of which the CQC is part. I would consider a meeting with members representing the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, to discuss the findings of the report.
