We were very concerned at the findings from the HEI Report into the recent unannounced visit at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.
As soon as we received verbal feedback from the inspector following the visit our Director of Nursing wrote to all 38,000 staff to highlight her deep concern at the shortcomings identified at the visit.
We are already progressing with a full and detailed action plan to address the requirements and one recommendation identified by this inspection. In addition, we have increased our local inspections of our health care environment across key areas.
We cannot, and will not, tolerate serious breaches of standards by healthcare professionals and all other staff within any part of our healthcare system.
We have been very clear and reinforced to all staff the importance of maintaining the high standards expected of them with regards to the health care environment for our patients.
