England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals has told North Bristol NHS Trust to make improvements in the quality of services at Southmead Hospital.
A team of inspectors from CQC visited the Trust unannounced in November 2017 to check the quality of five core services: urgent and emergency care, medical care, surgery, end of life care and outpatients.
The Trust’s overall rating remains as Requires Improvement with safety, effectiveness and responsiveness to people’s needs all being rated Requires Improvement. Caring remains Good, while well led has been downgraded to Requires improvement.
