Monitor is to investigate the Royal SurreyI have just heard that Monitor (he body responsible for overseeing all Foundation Trusts) will be formally investigating the Royal Surrey for two reasons
- its sudden runaway financial deficit which it failed to control through proper governance arrangements re top executives and the board
- and its deterioration in performance against key targets and standards particularly A&E waits, the 62 day cancer standard and cancer 2 week (breast) standard
Thus I certainly welcome the Monitor investigation.
The Trust has appointed a 'turnaround' Director who is now in post.
(Monitor has changed its a name very recently to 'NHS Improvement' - what a waste of money)
