As the news breaks today that serious failings have been uncovered within the NHS, the Chairman of Colchester Hospital and University NHS Foundation Trust is probably wishing that more attention had been paid to detail and that his story was not headline news.
Richard Borne was relieved of his post at the Colchester trust, citing poor leadership. It said the trust, which had been under review for nine months, had failed to meet waiting targets for A&E and cancer care, or to provide acceptable standards of patient care.
Death rates among patients were also 12% higher than expected. Urgent action is now being taken to raise standards. A series of errors and failings were reported and it is vital that your business does not suffer the same headline scrutiny.
