Nottingham University Hospitals Trust has been served with a section 29a warning notice by the Care Quality Commission requiring it to ensure a ‘more positive culture’.
A CQC spokeswoman confirmed: “The trust was issued with a warning notice requiring it to take action to improve corporate and clinical governance and oversight of risk, and to ensure a more positive, open and supportive culture across the organisation. We will report on the full findings from the inspection as soon as we are able to.”
Although it is still not clear why the warning was issued, the trust is currently engaged in concerns over their accident and emergency department and maternity services.
“We accept the CQC’s comments and work is already underway to learn from the findings and make improvements so that the organisation is led as effectively as possible and we continue to provide world class care for our patients.” Nottingham University Hospitals Trust acting chief executive and chief finance officer Rupert Egginton has said.
