Most trusts have scrapped mixed sex wards

6th April 2010

The government has announced that 95% of hospital trusts in England have scrapped mixed-sex accommodation that sees men and women being treated together.

Those trusts failing to do so will face financial penalties if they do not achieve the goal of separate accommodation, though the 5% still not meeting the target have plans in place to do so. Men and women can still be treated on the same ward in some cases, such as in intensive care or when patients need specialist care in a small group or urgent treatment.
