MP responds to Morecambe Bay Trust CQC inspection

May 16, 2019 10:50 AM

Commenting on the news that University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust has been rated as 'Requires Improvement' by the Care Quality Commission, local MP Tim Farron said:

"It's of course very disappointing that our local hospitals trust has gone from being rated Good to being rated as Requires Improvement.

"It's essential that the Trust immediately look to address the concerns raised by the CQC, but I have every faith that they will do this and turn things around.

"While the overall rating is disappointing, it's important to recognise that 'Care' has been rated good with the CQC finding that staff treat patients with 'compassion' and 'kindness' - which is testament to the brilliant job that our local doctors and nurses do."
