To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the recent CQC inspection which established that University Hospital Coventry requires improvement, whether he plans to ensure that staff at that hospital receive an adequate level of mandatory training; and if he will make a statement.
It is for individual providers to take forward recommendations of an inspection by the Care Quality Commission, seeking support from the wider health system as appropriate.
Mandatory training is defined by individual trusts as training that staff must undertake to perform their role.
University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust has set itself a challenging target of 95% for ensuring staff have the correct training to ensure its patients are kept safe. Currently over 92% of permanent staff meet that target.
