"Whittington takes wrong turn"

About: The Whittington Hospital

Anything else?

Poorly run hospital condemned by poor leadership for at least the past twenty years. Made a mess of Foundation application and has lost the support of the community in ill advised sell off plans. A lot of care is very good and provided by highly committed and competent staff. However poor and indifferent care is all too common.They are careful to try to ensure that they avoid problems in high profile areas such as A&E but areas such as rheumatology are at best indifferent.

Response from The Whittington Hospital

I am sorry to hear that you have been so dissappointed us as a Trust. I can confirm that we are still working towards becoming a foundation trust. We have also completed a listening exercise with the local community around our Estates Strategy. Revised plans maybe found at: http://ourfuture.whittington.nhs.uk/revised-plans/ Yours sincerely Cassie Williams Head of Patient Experience
