Hinchingbrooke Health Care must improve services

Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust faces enforcement action if it does not start complying with our standards.

In April 2010, the trust declared that it was in breach of the standard relating to keeping people safe from abuse. It advised that it would be compliant by the end of September 2010.

However, a review in October and November 2010 revealed that the trust had not made the necessary improvements.

A report published today shows the following findings

  • The trust was not implementing guidance on how to safeguard people who use services.
  • Information on safeguarding concerns were not included in two incident reports.
  • Suitable forms of control and restraint were not always implemented to protect people.

The trust has provided us with an action plan on how it intends to meet standards.

We will consider taking enforcement action if our review reveals that the trust remains non-compliant.
