Leadership review launched at ‘outstanding’ trust

The Care Quality Commission has launched a review of leadership at an “outstanding”-rated specialist trust, after receiving multiple concerns from whistleblowers.

The regulator is understood to have made an unannounced visit to The Christie Foundation Trust within the last week to inspect its medical services. The review will also cover the trust’s overall leadership.

HSJ understands the review is, at least, partly in response to the regulator receiving a number of concerns from whistleblowers about the trust’s leadership culture and behaviour of senior staff.

It comes after the trust came under scrutiny from NHS England last year, with independent reviews finding there had been multiple failings around the handling of a major research project.

The reviews also criticised the trust’s reaction to staff who had raised concerns, but failed to answer a key accusation that was made about the detriment suffered by whistleblowers.
