PERFORMANCE: Isle of Wight Trust has had a Care Quality Commission warning notice lifted after improvements were made to assessing and monitoring services. 

The CQC felt the trust had made “significant progress on required actions”, said trust chief executive Karen Baker in a report to the board.

The warning notice was partly a result of the CQC’s concerns about the trust’s record in protection of service users and analysis of incidents that resulted in harm.

The notice followed an inspection last year and a rating of “requires improvement”.

A letter to the trust from the CQC inspection manager for Hampshire, Moira Black, said: “As a trust your staff have demonstrated commitment and hard work to improve patient care and patients’ experience of care.”

The trust still has to comply with three other CQC notices, which include a requirement to boost nursing numbers.
