The Chief Officer at the North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, Sam Hepplewhite, has today welcomed the publication of a report from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which recommends that Colchester Hospital should be removed from special measures.
She said: “We are extremely pleased to see this recommendation from the CQC and delighted to see the trust has made such significant improvements resulting in this move.
“On behalf of the CCG, I would like to congratulate all the staff and the leadership team for all their efforts.
“We were particularly pleased to see recognition that inspectors had seen many examples of managers and senior staff who were actively engaged in seeking solutions to further improve levels of care for patients.
“The CCG, and the wider local health and social care system, will continue to work with the trust to make the improvements that are needed.”
