PERFORMANCE: NHS Leicester City has written to University Hospitals of Leicester Trust after it failed to deliver on agreed improvement plans on a number of patient safety areas.

The primary care trust’s director of quality Liz Rowbotham has written to the trust’s director of nursing and infection control Suzanne Hinchcliffe to ask for assurance that the quality lead and central governance team are focussing on “these key aspects of quality,” board minutes state.

They do not elaborate on what the quality issues are.

A board to board has already taken place.
