PERFORMANCE: Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was picked out by the Care Quality Commission as performing below average in the inpatient survey for giving patients notice of discharge.

The results of the 2012 national inpatient survey were published by the CQC earlier this month.

Ashford and St Peter’s was among eight trusts identified by the CQC as performing “significantly worse than average” for question 50 – were you given enough notice about when you were going to be discharged?
