Watchdog Monitor has fined Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (CUH) for failing to provide vital standard care being provided to cancer patients. The trust has been unable to meet necessary cancer standards for nine months in a row.
This is the reason that they have been asked to pay £104,000 as well as have been given a red card for its poor leadership. Monitor has asked the trust officials to arrange a meeting and provide them explanations for continuous failure.
Monitor has prepared a report, which will be presented in front of the trust's board of governors. The report has unveiled that almost 45% cases, whose treatment has been delayed, are of bladder cancer and prostate cancer.
It shall be noted that if the trust officials fail in providing genuine reason for the failure then the trust will be at risk of being placed in special measures. On the other hand, the hospital officials have said that they have made a plan, which they have also submitted with Monitor.
It is expected that Monitor will take an action on the same in the meeting. Hospital bosses said that if their plan is approved then they are expected to complete their proposed targets by the completion of the financial year.
