The A&E department is one of the areas to be improved at the Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust, according to a report out today by the Care Quality Commission.
The Chief Inspector of Hospitals for CQC, Professor Sir Mike Richards, said:
While some services were delivered effectively at the trust, the issues at the A&E department, poor management, staff training, and equipment maintenance must be improved.
The trust appeared to have hard working staff but there were concerns surrounding the lack of mandatory training being completed which could affect the way care is delivered. It is essential that staff are being adequately supported and developed in their roles.
