29 November 2018 9:20am

Dr Julian Povey, Chair of Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), and Dr Jo Leahy, Chair of Telford and Wrekin CCG, said:

“We have received a copy of the CQC inspection report on Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH). We welcome the increased support the Trust will receive as a result of special measures status. The report highlights a number of areas of concern and improvements are needed.  Clearly the Trust has a lot of work to do, but it is important to also acknowledge the many positive aspects of its work including its good rating for caring and the hard work, energy, and enthusiasm of all the doctors, nurses, and other health professionals and staff delivering a wide range of services to the public. We will continue to work as key partners with the Trust in supporting them to improve services so they meet the aspirations of both the public and ourselves.”
