The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn has officially been taken out of special measures.

Inspectors say it's improved significantly since criticisms about the care it offered.

It will now focus on clearing its £14 million deficit.

"The leadership of Queen Elizabeth’s hospital has made great progress in improving its services for patients, and deserves to be removed from special measures.

At the same time, our team of experts identified significant long-term challenges to the sustainability of the local health and care system.

These undertakings, agreed between Monitor and the trust, will go a long way towards fixing these problems. But further changes to how healthcare is funded and provided will need to be considered by the trust and their commissioners."
