Trust chief Simon Wright “You cannot be unaffected by a report like this. I’m sorry and disappointed that we have not made as much progress to tackle the issues and challenges that the trust faces as we all want.
“But people should not lose sight of many things that SaTH does not just well but significantly better than many other trusts around the country.
“I know how hard staff are working, how passionate they are about what they do and the care they provide.
“We will take to heart the CQC’s findings just as we welcome the extra support that is coming with special measures, to double down on the need to get things right and improve for the people we serve.”
The CQC said inspectors had also found some examples of “outstanding practice” in the trust’s end-of-life, maternity and critical care services.
