Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has failed to treat emergency patients within four hours. Moreover, it has also been found that the trust has been facing a number of problems at governance and financial front.
Health watchdog Monitor said they are going to take an action against the trust. The trust has been continuously breaching rules and henceforth, they have decided to take strict action against the trust.
On the other hand, the trust clarified its part that they have been making efforts to make progresses and they have also succeeded in registering successes. They have been trying to achieve targets and have received Foundation Trust status in 2008 for their performance in heath service.
Monitor has asked the trust to take steps to improve their services at accident and emergency unit. Moreover, they have also been instructed to devise new ways to improve their financial condition. Stephen Hay, Chief Operating Officer at Monitor, said, "We have been tracking the trust's performance for some time and are requiring action to be taken because it is not acceptable that the trust is persistently failing".
Steve Hone, head of the Kettering General Hospital Foundation Trust, said they will work hard to register progress, as being desired by the Monitor.
