Trust claims it is "committed to improving care systems"

The Dr Foster report acknowledges that the hospital expects to soon be visited by the national review team trying to improve hospital standards, because of the "higher than expected mortality rate, staff experience and patient experience results".

The trust claims that it is "committed to learning what more can be done to continually improve our systems and the wider systems of care."
