ROBERT Halfon MP welcomed the CQC report on Princess Alexandra Hospital Today.

The report highlighted a positive increase in the recruitment and retention of new nurses joining the Trust, with a further 200 expected in the next few months. Nationally there has been an increase of 8,500 doctors and over 6,300 nurses in the NHS since 2010.

It was also outlined that there has been an increase in the number of patients being seen and treated elsewhere by nurses and that this has been followed up rigorously to ensure that all patients are seen in a timely way.

Intensive training in regards to end of life care has been implemented, and an additional specialist staff member has been appointed to assist with this. The Maternity and Children’s wards in Princess Alexandra Hospital have also seen the introduction of state-of-the-art swipe-out security and surveillance.

The Government will increase NHS spending in real terms by £10 billion and has given an extra £5 million in 2014 and £4 million in 2015 to help Princess Alexandra Hospital with A&E services.

Robert Halfon said

‘The NHS staff at Princess Alexandra Hospital are second to none. We are lucky to have some of the finest NHS employees in the country who do so much to look after patients, even under very difficult circumstances. The CQC report for the most part recognises this and I congratulate the Maternity and Gynaecology Departments for their recognition by the CQC.

“The Government nationally is investing £10 billion more in the National Health Service in real terms and Princess Alexandra Hospital has received an extra £4 million pounds this year to assist with A&E.

“Moreover there will be 200 extra nurses. Nationally there has been an increase of 8,500 doctors and over 6,300 nurses in the NHS since 2010.’
