Joint statement following publication of National Audit Office report

Comment from Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

Joint statement following publication of National Audit Office report
14 July 2016

Following the publication of the National Audit Office report into the collapse of the UnitingCare Partnership contract in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust and Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have issued a joint statement: 


"We welcome the National Audit Office’s report into the UnitingCare contract.

"It is important that our local community, the taxpayer and the wider NHS fully understand what happened and why, and that lessons are learned.

"We believe that the report is balanced and provides clarity on the reasons why the contract ended. The report also recognises that we acted in the interests of local services during the close down of UnitingCare.

"Despite the contract ending we are pleased that the services UnitingCare put in place are continuing to make a positive impact for our
patients.

“Our focus now is to continue working closely with
the CCG and our partners to ensure that those
benefits are developed further.”

The full report from the National Audit Office can
