North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust

Grading:  - Requires Improvement

We carried out a follow-up inspection from 6 to 9 December 2016 to confirm whether North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust (NCUH) had made improvements to its services since our last comprehensive inspection, in April 2015. We also undertook an unannounced inspection on 21 December 2016.

There were four breaches of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 (Regulated Activities) Regulations. These were in relation to stafing, safe care and treatment, person centred care, and assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision.

The trust sent us an action plan telling us how it would ensure that it had made improvements required in relation to these breaches of regulation. At this inspection we checked whether these actions had been completed.
