NHS hospital fined £135,000 after a 350 per cent rise in breaches of ban on mixed sex wards An NHS hospital has been fined £135,000 after a 350 per cent increase in breaches of rules banning mixed sex wards.

Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust recorded 809 breaches of mixed-sex accommodation rules in the 12 months ending in August - up from 177 the previous year.

The NHS says trusts are expected to have a “zero-tolerance” approach towards placing men and women on the same wards, which it says is essential for ensuring safety, privacy and dignity for patients. The Daily Telegraph
