The chief executive of United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust has praised the work being done to get the trust out of special measures.

The statement came following an update at a Trust board meeting at Pilgrim Hospital last Tuesday, October 7.

ULHT chief executive Jane Lewington, said following the meeting: “Since the publication of the CQC inspection reports in July, staff from across the trust have been working hard delivering our quality improvement plan.

“The plan focuses on 19 projects - those must do areas highlighted by the CQC inspection team and also our longer-term goals to make sure all our services are high quality and sustainable.

“At our board meeting on Tuesday, I reported that we continue to make good progress and I am proud of the commitment the staff have shown to get the trust out of special measures.”

The trust aims to be out of special measures early next year.
