Concern Over Private Mental Hospital CQC Report

Fareham Labour Party has raised concerns about the Care Quality Commission (CQC) report on Uplands Independent Hospital.

The CQC is calling for more action to be taken to make sure the care home, which looks after mental health patients, is brought up to acceptable standards.

Labour members were horrified to read that the private hospital had failed patients in so many areas of assessment.

We say that improvements must take place immediately to ensure that very vulnerable patients are well looked after and not placed in any danger. We look forward to the next CQC inspection which hopefully will give a green light to the hospital. If the management failings addressed by the CQC are not fully addressed then we believe the very existence of the hospital should be brought into question. Quite simply, the patients deserve better.
