Colchester Hospital has been put into special measures by the health watchdog Monitor.
The Trust hit the headlines last week, after claims were made that some staff at the hospital had been bullied into falsifying data to help it meet targets.
This afternoon a meeting of the Trust's board was held at the hospital, where bosses discussed the measures, and took questions from the public.
Afterwards ITV News Anglia spoke to Chief Executive Dr Gordon Coutts.
