From BBC Leeds & West Yorkshire today:
A hospital for men with learning disabilities has been placed in special measures after there were “serious risks to patient safety”. The Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspected Cygnet Woodside, in Bradford, in September following allegations of abuse by staff towards a patient.
It’s not clear from the report but it looks like the health board put the hospital into special measures and then has defended itself. Matt Hancock is not pictured nor spoken too. No Labour politician tries to claim credit.
A year earlier in Scotland, the Health Secretary is blamed by a Labour MSP and the health board is given no right of reply.
Regulars here will know that this is a regular feature of BBC Scotland reporting.
