It's sad to see another Trust being placed into special measures - something which seems to be all too common at the moment.
If you have experienced poor treatment at St George's or any other trust, contact Dutton Gregory to see if you might have a claim for negligence.
The trust responsible for one of the UK's largest teaching hospitals will be placed in special measures after it was rated inadequate. St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was told by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) that services had deteriorated in the past two years. The trust serves 1.3 million people. It said it had made "real progress" since the June inspection. But interim hospital trust chairman Sir David Henshaw, part of a new leadership team, said: "There will be no quick fix to the problems we face. "Many of these challenges are due to poor board and senior management decisions in the past and a failure to tackle the big challenges head on. "We owe it to our staff and patients to make St George's better again. The CQC's report is a key part of this improvement journey."
