The new chief executive of the James Paget University Hospitals NHS Trust has vowed to improve standards of care for patients following a damning report from the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
It follows an inspection of the James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk.
David Hill, who joined the trust last, week said: “The challenges raised by the Care Quality Commission are my top priority.
"We welcome the fact that the CQC are driving up standards of bedside care across the country including this hospital.
"The James Paget fully accepts that the necessary pace of improvement here has not been fast enough and we should have responded more quickly."
