Trust’s emergency departments still need improving

20 February 2020 – CQC

CQC carried out focused inspections at two emergency departments (EDs) that are part of King’s College Hospital Foundation Trust.

King’s College Hospital, Denmark Hill, Camberwell’s ED was rated Requires Improvement. At Princess Royal University Hospital (PRUH) in the London borough of Bromley, the ED was rated Inadequate, after inspections in November 2019. The rating of the Trust overall is not affected and stays at Requires Improvement.

The purpose of the two inspections was to follow-up on concerns from CQC’s previous inspection, conducted in January and February 2019. The concerns focused on patient care and outcomes, culture, governance and leadership. This latest focused inspection was undertaken to review the progress the Trust had made.
