Patient care warning given to hospital

23rd February 2012

Two warning notices have been issued to Tunbridge Wells Hospital at Pembury in Kent after an unannounced inspection from the Care Quality Commission.

The CQC found that patients experienced significant delays and wards were understaffed at a recently opened £230m Kent hospital and said that it was in breach of two of the government's essential standards. Staffing problems in both the minor injury unit and the major injury unit were highlighted. The hospital has issued an apology and has said that improvements have been made.
