  • Northern Lincolnshire & Goole NHS Foundation Trust (18 013 579)

    Statement Upheld Hospital acute services 13-Mar-2020

    Summary: The Ombudsmen find fault by the Trust, in that it sent Mr M's follow-up appointment letters to the wrong address and as a result he was discharged from follow-up care. This meant Mr M did not have the opportunity to discuss his care with a specialist. However the Ombudsmen find it was reasonable of the Trust and Council not to refer Mr M for continuing healthcare, and that he was provided with stroke rehabilitation in line with the relevant standards and guidance.

    Statement Not upheld Hospital acute services 04-Mar-2020

    Summary: Ms X complained that Walsall Metropolitan Council, Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust and Pleck Health Centre failed to meet safeguarding duties in respect of her late mother, Mrs Y.
