To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment he has made of the effectiveness of the provision of A&E services at North Middlesex Hospital.
23 May 2016
We are advised that NHS Improvement (NHSI) is working with NHS England to bring together colleagues from across the local health and social care system to support North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust (NMUH) to work to deliver improvements to patients.
We are informed by NHSI that to address the poor performance in NMUH’s accident and emergency, it has devised a plan titled Safer, Faster, Better. This is a whole system programme with the primary objective of improving performance, patient experience and outcomes for patients. This will build on the recent Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust analysis of the trust’s emergency care pathway, and complement previous reviews identifying root causes of the problem.
