PATIENTS and staff at Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust are still in the dark about whether or not the organisation has improved enough to come out of special measures.
The results of a report into standards at Queen's Hospital and other sites have now been shared with the organisation, but the outcome is yet to be publicly revealed.
Several other hospitals which were placed into special measures at the same time as Burton learned their fate yesterday.
Chief executive Helen Ashley said yesterday: "The trust attended a quality summit yesterday, and in line with the Care Quality Commission timeline the next step is publication of the report.
"Given the timing of the quality summit the trust is still awaiting further feedback in terms of special measures. However, since the visit in April the trust has ensured that immediate action where appropriate has been taken in response to verbal CQC feedback given at the time of the visit."
