Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill calls on Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust to improve

Bury St Edmunds MP Jo Churchill has called on Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust to step up after another 'requires improvement' rating.

The Conservative said she wants to hold a meeting with chiefs from the mental health service after the watchdog Care Quality Commission released its latest findings today (Wednesday, January 15).

Mrs Churchill said: “It is disappointing that the trust remains in special measures.

"I will be speaking with the leadership to arrange a meeting to discuss the findings of this report and how the trust plans to move forward."

The trust is among the UK's worst performing for providing mental health care and provisions for those with learning disabilities.

The report noted some improvements and rated it 'good' for the care of its staff. But in four other areas it was marked as 'requires improvement' - the same rating as achieved in 2017.

Mrs Churchill added: "While it is encouraging that the Care Quality Commission has found improvements in the trust's care, all stakeholders now need to work together to deliver the supportive service that we are all striving for.”
