The trust has acknowledged it must recruit more nurses – but patients in hospital today are entitled to be treated in services which are safe, effective, caring, well led, and responsive to their needs, and where a service is failing on any of these grounds, action is needed. We have told the trust to show us how it will address these issues and make the necessary improvements. We will return unannounced in the near future to check that it has made those changes.
