A health watchdog says Basildon Hospital is improving and has been taken off special measures.

The hospital's been under the spotlight following a series of damning reports. Now though the Care Quality Commission says there've been significant improvements in patient care.

Their report said the hospital had done an impressive amount of work over a short time. Infection control and the treatment of sick children had improved. The report follows a two day inspection in September.
