The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has told Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust that it must make improvements to the maternity services at Queens Hospital in Romford, Essex following a recent inspection.

A report has recently been published about Dementia services in Barking and Dagenham by Healthwatch, an organisation which acts as the champions of consumers for local people in relation to health and social services. The report publishes new statistics on dementia and lists the many different services available to those who need them.

Jon Cruddas, MP for Dagenham and Rainham has supported many dementia awareness campaigns over the years and is committed to improving the lives of those who suffer from dementia and their families.

Last month a new report was published using research from Sheffield Hallam University, Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Oxfam. The report highlights the effects of pre-2015 welfare reforms and the anticipated impact of further reform across the United Kingdom. It is estimated that new reforms will take in the region of £13bn a year from claimants by 2020-21.

CQC report reveals that Queens Hospital is still failing to meet targets
