Lib Dems welcome improved performance at Stepping Hill

Speaking after the publication of the most recent CQC instpection of Stepping Hill NHS Foundation Trust, Cllr Mark Hunter, Leader of the Liberal Democrats at Stockport Town Hall, said: “We offer our congratulations to Karen James and her team at Stepping Hill for the positive turn around in performance as measured recently by the CQC.

“Although their most recent assessment confirms that the hospital still requires improvement overall, it is only fair to acknowledge considerable progress has already been made, particularly in regard to urgent and emergency care. We agree with statement issued by the Stockport NHS Foundation Trust that this is, indeed, testament to the efforts and hard work of all the dedicated doctors, nurses and other staff who work there.

“It’s worth also noting that this improved performance takes place against a background of unprecedented pressures as a result of the Covid pandemic. We are so often accused of being quick to criticise when things go wrong, so it is only fair to comment favourably and publicly when they are going in the right direction.”
