Barts Healthcare NHS Trust is bracing itself for a rigorous inspection by the Care Quality Commission's new Chief Inspector of Hospitals, after it was deemed a 'high risk' under new guidelines.
A trust spokeswoman said: "We continue to strengthen the quality of care for our patients following our recent merger and welcome the new inspection process. We will use the findings to continue to build high quality services and to address any areas in need of improvement."
