Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Care for the Elderly



Shocking filmed report about findings of inadequate care for the elderly, on ITV Meridian 6pm Regional News this evening (18 December 2013).

Let's hope the apologies following the inspection and report lead to a great improvement in the situation, as promised. See TV report for hospital reaction to the Care Quality Commission Report.

BBC News

David Fenton , BBC Health Correspondent, also filed a BBC South TV report

"Inappropriate"

Care Quality Commission Report

Before the inspection

On the proposed merger of Bournemouth and Poole

and the promotional video on the business plan for the merger proposal (YouTube):

"The best of the best...first class quality care...our communities can be proud of the excellent service...high quality services...24 hours a day...seven days a week".

And an apology from Dorset County Hospital

NHS "Too powerful to criticise"? (Telegraph)

NB My own experience of the NHS in recent years has been very good. My brother has nothing but praise and gratitude, for the surgeon and the team that saved his life.

Spare a thought for NHS Staff
