Birmingham Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in the UK has failed to meet half of the improvement targets set by health inspectors in 2009.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said that the trust has fully met six of the 12 recommendations, and commended it for making services more accessible, improving its management systems, and recruiting and training additional staff.

However, the CQC added that the remainder still needed improvement and would continue to be monitored.

Inspectors found there were still delays in admitting neurosurgery and liver patients. They were also critical of the trust for still not properly monitoring data around delays in admissions.

The recommendations were made by the CQC’s predecessor, the Healthcare Commission, in early 2009, after it criticised the trust for failing to meet rising demands for its services.
