NHS: Trusts you can’t trust to keep you alive

1 Comment

Prior to the publication of the Keogh report it was known that there were 14 NHS Trusts under review out of a total of 160 acute trusts in England.

Now we know there are eleven which have been put into special measures ie they are being run by specialist teams of doctors and nurses parachuted in to sort things out.

  4. United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust,
