CQC launches urgent inspection at Sherwood Forest hospitals

The Care Quality Commission is today beginning an inspection into breast cancer screening, pathology and clinical governance at Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The inspection comes as 79 women are being recalled relating to test results from breast tissue biopsies.

This urgent inspection will allow us to take an in-depth look at the quality and safety of the trust's services that relate to breast cancer screening.
