Response from Joanne McCartney AM to the CQC’s “Inadequate” rating for NMUH

Responding to the CQC’s “Inadequate” rating for North Middlesex University Hospital, Local London Assembly Member, Joanne McCartney AM, said:

“We’ve got a staffing crisis across London’s NHS of which this is by far the worst example. The reports we’ve had from North Middlesex about patients being left on trolleys for hours and plunging waiting times are startling. Unless the government reduces pressure on local health budgets and unless we see better primary care services locally to address pressure on A&E services, this crisis is only going to escalate.

“I’ve raised this with the Mayor and he has agreed to address the issue with the Regional Director for NHS London. I’ll also be sending a copy of this report to the Mayor. It’s shameful the Health Secretary hasn’t stepped up to address this problem.”
