A report to the primary care trust’s board said the contract notice was issued on 25 June when it was thought it was an issue with patient flow in Royal Cornwall
Hospitals Trust.

However, by the time the June data was available it was apparent the issues were multi-organisationsal, the report said.

It continued: “Under the terms of the NHS contract Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust have asked for a joint investigation across the community, with resulting action plan.

“This is being overseen by the executive patient flow group which is being temporarily chaired by Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust’s chief executive.”
