System response to quality concerns in providers

In partnership with NHS England and Health Education England, we have published a joint response to a Deloitte learning review looking into how the system responded to concerns about poor quality of care and poor trainee experience at North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust between 2014 and 2016.

The response sets out how national bodies have been working together since the review period (centrally and regionally) to identify quality risks in providers, share concerns and develop coordinated support interventions.
