“It will be a difficult road but we are sure it is possible to get to where we want to be.”
However, communication between the CCG and QEH has been positive according to chief officer Dr Sue Crossman. 
She said: “Staff in all departments we’ve had contact with have been extremely open. They were very willing and grateful for the opportunity to have an independent review.
“We still have concerns about the quality of services, staffing levels and financial planning. We’re working with the QEH and supporting them to make those improvements.”
