The United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust has responded to calls for members of its board to consider their position, by the chair of the county's Health Scrutiny Committee. In a brief statement, the Trust says the future of the board is not for it to consider:
The future of the Board is a matter for the Trust Development Authority. All of ULHT’s directors are focusing entirely on the important task of addressing the issues raised in the Keogh Review, to continue the Trust’s journey of improvement.
Some of our region's hospitals could have so-called "hit squads" sent in over claims there have been thousands of needless deaths.
The Health Secretary is set to send "hit squads" to 10 failing hospital trusts, where thousands of people could have needlessly died.
