Damning Hospital Report

‘Poorly led, requires improvement….’

The Care Quality Commission has judged that Tunbridge Wells HospitalCQC_328x212 is poorly led, requires improvement in all areas and is putting the lives of patients in intensive care at risk. In a report published this week the Chief Inspector of Hospitals graded both the Tunbridge Wells and Maidstone hospitals as ‘requiring improvement’. This follows on from shocking A and E performance previously reported in January.

Kevin Kerrigan, prospective Labour candidate for Tunbridge Wells, said “This is a very worrying report and a sad day for our hospital – the first brand-new state of the art hospital in the UK to be opened under the coalition. Kevin KerriganThe report makes it clear that despite its hard-working dedicated staff the hospital is falling behind national standards in many areas. It is significant that these problems have come to light after the wasteful and chaotic top-down reorganisation of the NHS brought in by the present government”.
