An investigation was commenced by Monitor, the Trust's regulator, following the issuing of two Warning Notices by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in June 2014. These related to staffing levels and risk management arrangements in the Trust. The CQC re-visited the Trust in September 2014 and lifted those Warning Notices, having found significant improvement.
This week, Monitor has informed the Trust that they are satisfied that we have responded positively to the findings of the Care Quality Commission and have therefore closed their formal investigation.
As we have previously communicated, we are to be visited again by the Care Quality Commission in February and are working hard to showcase the great care we provide to our patients. The Trust wishes to take this opportunity to say how proud we are of the services and care provided here at Liverpool Women’s and thank every single member of staff and volunteer for their dedication, hard work and commitment.
To ensure the views of patients and the local community are properly heard, the inspectors will be holding a listening event on Thursday 12 February at 6:30pm. Roddick Room, The Women's Organisation, 54 St James Street, Liverpool, Merseyside, L1 0AB. Anyone who would like to share their experience at Liverpool Women's are invited to attend.
Anyone who is unable to attend the listening event but wishes to give their views to the inspection team can do this by:
