Alarmed MP in call for ‘re­cov­ery plan’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Hospital In Crisis -

Ash­ford MP Damian Green de­scribed the re­port’s con­tent as “alarm­ing”.

Mr Green re­sponded to the find­ings say­ing the is­sues need to be ad­dressed ur­gently.

He added: “There are clearly se­ri­ous prob­lems which need to be ad­dressed ur­gently by the se­nior man­age­ment at the trust.

“I will want to see a re­cov­ery plan which deals with the prob- lems the CQC iden­ti­fies, and which builds on the strengths in pa­tient care and the hard work of the staff which the re­port iden­ti­fies.

“I will of course work closely both with the trust man­age­ment and the na­tional health au­thor­i­ties in achiev­ing the best pos­si­ble health­care for peo­ple in Ash­ford, and in par­tic­u­lar pa­tients at the Wil­liam Har­vey.”
