Weekly roundup: Three trusts strive to maintain and improve their CQC ratings

Latest investigations 

Gloucestershire Hospitals Foundation Trust

The trust has been in financial special measures since October 2016 and reported an unexpectedly large deficit for 2016-17. A subsequent review blamed the former chief executive, finance director and chair for failures of governance that led to a £16m black hole in the finances. The key priority for the new leadership team is to be in financial balance and out of special measures by April 2019.The trust wants to consolidate strong accident and emergency performance. A £39m investment in estates from 2019 should further enhance care flow.

Maidstone & Tunbridge Wells Trust

The trust narrowly missed a “good” rating in March 2018 with a “requires improvement” rating despite a report which was significantly improved from the 2015 one. This is likely to drive a desire to improve further. The trust successfully moved services between sites in the winter of 2017-18 to cope with a potential winter crisis. Its stroke services across the trust are likely to be centralised on one site, preferably Maidstone as it would involve less capital investment. It will face a big cost improvement challenge to achieve a surplus in 2018-19.

Poole Hospital Foundation Trust

Poole Hospital’s A&E is to be downgraded to a 24/7 urgent care centre and plans to merge with neighbour trust have been resurrected. There is significant building work ahead as part of a service reconfiguration. A large amount of work on architecture, construction, engineering, and planning is likely to be tendered over 2019-20. To maintain financial and performance stability, the trust may consider short term partnerships to improve A&E performance, which is key to unlocking much needed money. Estates, training, and staffing issues top the trust’s improvement agenda.
