Monitor is seeking the views of local people on its findings in relation to the conduct of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Primary Care Trust (Cornwall PCT) following a complaint by an independent sector provider.
Health sector regulator Monitor and NHS England are working together to reform the way NHS services are paid for.
Monitor has authorised Kingston Hospital NHS Trust as a foundation trust, effective from 1 May 2013. This is the first foundation trust to be established under the regulator’s new powers to promote and protect patient’s interests. Monitor will regulate the Trust on its ability to be a well-led organisation that provides patients with quality care on a sustainable basis.
Monitor has confirmed the enforcement action it is taking over known or potential breaches of the new provider licence by 18 NHS foundation trusts.
Dorset HealthCare University Foundation Trust has given legally binding undertakings that it will put right potential breaches of the licence issued by the health sector regulator.
Over the past year Monitor has received external advice to help us develop our new role in time for April 2013. In order to meet this increased responsibility and deliver value for money for the taxpayer, Monitor commissioned some experts to advise on developing the new regime.
Health Regulator Monitor has announced the appointment of Trust Special Administrators to safeguard the future of health services currently provided by Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust.
Monitor set out a key role for clinicians in guidance about how Trust Special Administrators should carry out their statutory role. The move is intended to ensure Trust Special Administrators are well placed to act in the interests of patients. The guidance includes detailed instructions to help Trust Special Administrators engage with the local population as they draw up plans for patient services.
From April 1 Monitor took on new powers as the sector regulator for health, with a duty to protect and promote the interests of patients.
