A review of nursing levels and the complaints procedure will be carried out at Walsall Manor Hospital in light of the report into the scandal at Stafford.
An action plan is being drawn up by Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust to ensure the hospital meets recommendations made by the Francis Report. More staff feedback and reviewing the work on mortality reduction are also planned over the next six months.
It comes as two bosses at the scandal-hit trust that runs the Stafford and Cannock hospitals have quit after steps were taken to place it into special administration.
Dr Lynne Hulme and Eleanor Chumley-Roberts stepped down from their roles at what may have been the last meeting of the existing board of Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust yesterday.
It came after health regulator Monitor announced it had begun steps to put the trust into special administration in a bid to “safeguard services” for patients. Monitor had already declared it “financially and clinically unsustainable”.
Health chiefs in Walsall met yesterday and said steps are already in place to address issues raised by Robert Francis QC after the investigation into appaling standards of care at Stafford that saw hundreds of patients die needlessly.
Chief executive Richard Kirby said the the report provides “significant lessons” for all NHS organisations.
