FINANCE: The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital Foundation Trust identified an increased risk in achieving Commissioning for Quality and Innovation requirements for 2012-13.

March board papers, released under the Freedom of Information Act showed that the trust gave “red” risk ratings for six of its 12 CQUINs for the year.

The trust identified doubts over CQUINs relating to dementia; alcohol and smoking; pressure ulcer reduction; safe transfers of medicine; electronic transfer of patient data; and increasing the number of patients in “enhanced recovery”.

The CQUINs had a combined potential value of £626,741.

“There is an increase in risk in achieving CQUINs”, the papers said. “…at the point of writing a number of these do not have acceptable mitigation plans.”
