Item Type:
report
Description:
This report presents the findings from the review of the governance of UL Hospitals (referred to in this report as ULH or ) that has been undertaken by the Health Information and Quality Authority (the Authority). This review was undertaken in order to monitor progress with the implementation of the Authority’s National Standards for Safer Better Healthcare(1) (referred to subsequently in this report as the National Standards). The Authority used the National Standards to identify specific features that should be in place in acute hospitals to achieve safe, high quality governance, the absence of which would be a cause for concern. The specific features selected for this review are outlined in Appendix 1. This is the first hospital group in the newly established hospital group structures(2) to be reviewed against the National Standards. It was selected because a number of issues were identified as concerns. These are outlined in the background to the review.
