Response to the North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust Mortality Review

Posted on Tuesday 16th July 2013

 

NHS Cumbria Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has welcomed the publication of the mortality review report. The report clearly sets out very important issues that need to be fully addressed to improve hospital services for the people of North Cumbria.

The CCG also welcomes the North Cumbria University Hospital NHS Trust’s response to the report. The interim Chief Executive and interim Medical Director have developed a full and credible action plan, which builds on the service improvement work the Trust has already begun to deliver.

However, to ensure a sustained improvement in the long term, the CCG strongly supports the completion of the acquisition of the Trust by Northumbria Health NHS Foundation Trust.

The acquisition will enable proven clinical and managerial leadership and high quality clinical systems to be introduced to North Cumbria. This will deliver real benefits for patients and is an important step in responding to the challenges in hospital services.

David Rogers, Deputy Clinical Chair of NHS Cumbria CCG said: “The findings of the Keogh review confirm what local GPs and patients already knew, that there needs to be major improvements in the quality of care in our hospitals.

“As a local GP, I only want to commission services for patients that I know are safe and high quality, and which I would have full confidence in me or my family using”.

“The Trust are already taking many of the right actions.We are committed to working with them to fully take forward the findings, and to make sure that the people of north Cumbria receive the quality of care that they deserve”.
