This Trust has just failed the most recent CQC inspection in October 2013 and has been ordered to provide details of compliance by November 13th 2013.
The report can be accessed on the CQC website under St Pancras Hospital. It states concerns that many of us have been raising for a very long time and the Trust has ignored
