Latest investigations

Oxford Health Foundation Trust 

Our correspondent Sharon Brennan says that balancing finances is one of the biggest challenges the trust faces in the years ahead, and that cost improvement programme savings are proving very hard to meet. 

She identifies opportunities to support the trust to find further efficiency savings, as well as openings to offer advice on tax, regulation and legal structures following the launch of a community and primary care joint venture company next April.

Southern Health Foundation Trust

Southern Health is one of England’s largest mental health and community services providers. The trust looks after patients in Hampshire and parts of Oxfordshire, and employs almost 6,000 staff. In 2016-17 the trust had a turnover of £320m. 

In his new investigation, Nicholas Carding says that the organisation is struggling with recruitment and retention of staff, particularly in older people’s mental health services. 

Southern Health is considering whether to stop providing its community services and managers are awaiting redesign of care model from commissioners. 

His key message here is that the trust wants to continue work with local GPs to create extended primary care hubs.

Read about these issues and how the trust is addressing longstanding concerns about quality and safety here.
