PERFORMANCE: A confidential report commissioned by NHS London has listed the strategic health authority’s quality concerns about the capital’s provider bodies.

The Organisational Health Intelligence report was revealed under the Freedom of Information Act. It was submitted to NHS London’s medical directorate in January.

It revealed there had been a review of maternal deaths at the Hillingdon Hospital.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ Foundation Trust was red rated for staff mix “due to relatively low levels of qualified nursing staff”.

At Mayday Healthcare Trust, now called Croydon Health Services Trust, patient experience indicators are expected to be the main risk to the trust’s FT application.

North West London Hospital Trust’s accident and emergency performance is being addressed by the DH National Intensive Support team.

Barnet and Chase Farm Trust could potentially merge with North Middlesex University Hospital if its standalone FT bid fails, according to the report.

The document’s author, head of quality Jane Barnacle, said: “OHI endeavours to form part of NHS London’s early warning system in partnership with the sectors, identifying quality and safety issues with the aim of avoiding a potential crisis similar to Mid Staffordshire.”
