Watchdog lifts last of eight conditions imposed on Redbridge hospital trust in 2010
The last in a series of improvement commands imposed on Redbridge’s troubled hospital trust by a health regulator has been lifted this week, but concerns remain.
Maternity and midwifery bosses are now employing “sufficient numbers of staff with the appropriate skills, knowledge, experience and qualifications to meet the needs of patients at [Romford’s] Queen’s Hospital”.
It was the last of eight conditions imposed on Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT) by watchdog the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in March 2010.
The trust has welcomed the decision but the CQC still has “moderate” concerns regarding the trust’s maternity unit.

BHRUT – which runs Queen’s and King George Hospital, Barley Lane, Goodmayes – is also the subject of a separate major probe by the same regulator after inspectors raised “serious concerns” about patient care in maternity and A&E.
Trust chief executive Averil Dongworth said: “We, and CQC, are confident that the improvements made are well embedded and sustainable.”
