WORKFORCE: NHS staff survey results identified a continuing issue regarding health and safety reporting at Ashford and St Peter’s, according to board papers.

As a result, the latest health and safety board report noted: “Responsibility for health and safety had recently transferred to the portfolio of the deputy chief executive and a review of the content of the [health and safety] report was underway.”

It added: “The trust was looking to strengthen the underpinning structure for health and safety within the divisions and had also commissioned an independent review of mandatory training.”
