Improvement at hospital

Have your say

“POSITIVE developments” are being made in the quality of care at Boston Pilgrim Hospital, according to a recent report.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has found improvements are being made at the troubled hospital following an investigation.

However, the report says further progress is still needed “to protect patients from the risk of poor care”.

The hospital, which is run by United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust (UHLT), is currently listed as failing to meet all five of the criteria set down by the CQC.

An investigation was launched in June after a report was released highlighting “major concerns” with essential standards relating to the care and welfare of people who use services and meeting nutritional needs.

The CQC had also ordered ULHT to make improvements in February.
