Queen Alexandra Hospital

14th June 2016
Grading Explained: Requires Improvement

We undertook a comprehensive inspection of Portsmouth Hospital NHS Trust last year, in February and March 2015. At that time we found some patients in the emergency department (ED) were at risk of unsafe care and treatment. We rated the safety of urgent and emergency care services as ‘inadequate’. We served two warning notices on 4 March 2015, under safety for “care and welfare of patients” and “assessing and monitoring the quality of service provision” in the emergency department. These required the trust to make immediate action to improve the initial assessment of patients, the safe delivery of care and treatment, and the management of emergency care in the ED. A subsequent re-inspection of the emergency department in April 2015 saw improvements, and the service was then rated overall as ‘requires improvement’.
