Norfolk MPs Elizabeth Truss and Henry Bellingham have written to the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to request an urgent meeting to seek action on problems at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Kings Lynn.
Last week reports by the Care Quality Commission and Monitor identified a number of failings at the hospital, including missed A&E waiting times and poor staffing levels. The MPs are seeking an urgent solution.
They said: “Residents need to know that the health care they receive in West Norfolk is of the highest possible standard and we plan to ensure this is delivered. That is why we have raised the situation at the Queen Elizabeth hospital with the Secretary of State for Health.”
