THE initial dust has settled on yesterday's CQC report into the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and everyone has had time to digest the contents.

Politicians, campaigners and members of the public have offered a range of reaction, from shock to great concern.

Some of the strongest comments have come from newly created body Healthwatch which has questioned RBH's 'right' to use the strapline 'putting patients first'. While the hospital's management has questions to answer, so clearly do members of the foundation trust's board, anonymous, silent and seemingly not very effective.
