What we are doing?
The Trust was rated as Inadequate following a CQC inspection visit on 16-18 September 2014 and 2 unannounced
visits on 21 and 28 September 2014. The CQC carried out a comprehensive inspection of the acute core services

Compliance Action 1 - Staffing
Compliance Action 2 - Care and Welfare of People
Compliance Action 3 - Assessing and Monitoring
Compliance Action 4 - Safeguarding People
Compliance Action 5 - Infection Control
Compliance Action 6 - Respecting and Involving People
Compliance Action 7 - Records

Our Chief Executive, Hisham Abdel Rahman, is ultimately responsible for implementing actions in this document.
Other key staff are Deirdre Fowler, Director of Nursing, Catherine Hubbard, Medical Director, who will provide the
executive leadership for quality, patient safety and patient experience.
The Improvement Director has not yet been announced, but is expected to be in place by the 1 April 2015. The
improvement Director will be acting on behalf of the TDA to ensure delivery of the improvements and oversee the
implementation of the action plan summarised overleaf.

Ultimately our success in implementing the recommendations of the CQC Composite Action Plan will be assessed by
the Chief Inspector of Hospitals, upon re-inspection of our Trust.
