England’s Care Quality Commission has asked Luton and Dunstable Hospital NHS Foundation Trust to improve its services to comply with essential standards of care for patients.

A review undertaken by the independent health and social care regulator in February 2011 revealed that the trust had failed to meet 16 essential standards of care.

Luton and Dunstable Hospital fell short of some of the standards, such as respecting the dignity of patients, helping them to make informed choices about their care and treatment, ensuring their care and welfare, and protecting them from unsafe practice and abuse.

The Care Quality Commission also expressed its concern over people being discharged without adequate planning, lack of supervisory or peer support, and failures in the way it reports safeguarding incidents to the National Patient Safety Agency.

The trust has been warned of enforcement action if improvements are not made.
