James Paget University Hospitals Foundation Trust has been given a clean bill of health on some of the areas of concern raised by the Care Quality Commission.

But it is being asked to produce an action plan after the CQC raised “major concerns” over medicine management at the trust.

The CQC reinspected the trust in December after a series of critical inspection reports. The inspectors found there had been an improvement around meeting the nutritional needs of patients - which had led to a warning notice around monitoring of standards of care being issued - and the trust was now compliant on this.

However, a lack of written information to guide staff in administering medicines and delays in some patients receiving drugs when they were not available on the ward were highlighted.

The CQC confirmed that it has now withdrawn all warning notices against the trust, although there are two other areas where it will be checking compliance as well as medicines management.

Interim trust chairman Peter Franzen said: “We are determined to meet the high standards that our patients expect us to deliver and we’re pleased the CQC inspectors are satisfied that we meet the standards on monitoring quality. The priority now is to make sure we continue to improve medicines management and maintain the progress we are making.”

The trust’s chairman resigned at the end of last year and chief executive Wendy Slaney has announced she is to retire later this year.
