The Chief Inspector of Hospitals, Professor Sir Mike Richards, has said that it is "disappointing" that he has had to put the Morecambe Bay Hospitals NHS Trust into special measures.
“There is a long history of concern with the quality of service provided by University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust – so it is disappointing to report that a number of the issues that have been identified in the past remain unresolved.
“I do not believe that the trust is likely to resolve its challenges without external support. This is why I am recommending that the trust is placed in to special measures."
