Hospital Negligence

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust – one of the worst ten mortality rates in the UK

Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals Trust – one of the worst ten mortality rates in the UK

A story published in the Scunthorpe Telegraph on Thursday 13th September 2012 revealed the findings of a new report has highlighted the Trust to have one of the worst ten mortality rates in the country.

A story published in the Scunthorpe Telegraph on Thursday 13th September 2012 revealed the findings of a new report has highlighted the Trust to have one of the worst ten mortality rates in the country.

The report reveals an additional problem with the Trust that is unfortunately already too familiar to some of our clients…..

Officials are disappointed with the lack of end of life care and the overall experience at Scunthorpe General Hospital.  This is something to which we were already aware.

North and North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups instigated the review which was undertaken by Transforming Health Limited.

After completion of the report, Dr Liz Scott, medical director for the Trust released a statement and can be quoted as saying “This is an issue for the whole health community and we are working hard within the Trust to make sure that all possible factors are addressed”

As part of the problem, the report highlighted staffing issues; poor hygiene; poor toilet facilities; bedding remaining unchanged and the complexity of the health care system at the Trust as some of the main causes of the high figures.

The Trust seem to suggest that they are implementing new systems, such as rotas and investment in staff to attempt to reduce their mortality rate however we are disappointed that a report has to be produced to ensure action like this is taken.

Just another example of the unnecessary deaths which occur every day in our Hospitals as a result of poor standards of care.

Couldn’t fault Hudgell Solicitors. They were professional, pleasant informative and helpful and got a result which was better than I had ever expected. When Becci left the practice and Alex took over my claim it was a seamless change over, indicating a personel strength in depth. Thank you.
