How do failing NHS trusts get back to delivering high-quality care? The answer, a new study suggests, can involve emulating Dragons’ Den, the boss popping in at 3am – and staff doing less rather than more.

A report from NHS providers sets out in detail how 11 trusts providing acute, ambulance and mental health care in England have used a negative rating from the Care Quality Commission as the catalyst for a turnaround in their fortunes.

The 11 trusts’ approaches were all different. But the lessons learned from how they shook things up and ultimately regained a good CQC assessment for their efforts offer valuable insights into how quality and safety of care can be transformed despite underfunding and staff shortages.
