An investigation by the UK’s Care Quality Commission (CQC) has revealed 16 major concerns at Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRT).

Inspectors focused on maternity, elective and emergency care services provided at King George Hospital and Queen’s Hospital.

During the investigation on 4 July 2011 problems were found in maternity services including poor clinical care, abusive and unprofessional behaviour from staff, lack of learning from maternal deaths, and a lack of leadership from senior management.

The social regulator also expressed concerns about A&E services, staff vacancies, locum or bank staff, lines of communication, trust governance systems, weak corporate governance, and responses to complaints.

The CQC said it will review the trust in March 2012 to determine whether necessary improvements have been made.
