London trust told to improve cleanliness

16th January 2009

The Healthcare Commission has called on South West London and St George’s Mental Health Trust to improve cleanliness and provide more activities for patients.

Findings from the watchdog’s independent assessment of three wards within the trust have been published and make recommendations to improve the care of patients. The move follows an assessment started in July 2008, after the Healthcare Commission was alerted to concerns about cleanliness and a lack of engagement between staff and patients. Inspections were made of the John Meyer Ward at Springfield University Hospital and the Laurel and Lavender Wards at Queen Mary’s Hospital.
