Commenting on the Care Quality Commission’s reports into the Hospitals run by South London Healthcare NHS Trust, Mr Evennett said:
“I was very concerned about the problems highlighted by the investigations, particularly with regards to medicines, care, safeguarding and welfare of patients, record-keeping and staff morale. As SLHT has existed as an organisation for nearly 2 years, I am surprised that many of these had not been addressed before.”
