The NHS Trust which runs Colchester Hospital has welcomed a report published today looking into the safety of the hospital's cancer services.
The review was carried out by NHS England who found five areas of cancer care which were deemed to be "unsafe".
“We accept in full the report and its recommendations, and I would like to thank everyone who contributed for their work which shines a light on the way ahead for our cancer services.
“Today’s publication will help to shape our Cancer Action Plan and gives us an opportunity to create consistently good quality cancer services that our patients have the right to expect, a challenge which we have already taken up with great focus and determination.
“The report identifies a number of problems in our cancer services which are extremely concerning but which we have started to address."
