Stephen Eames, interim chief executive of the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “I would like to apologise unreservedly to the patients and families of those whose care hasclearly not been good enough."
“We are taking this issue very seriously and we put an action plan in place as soon as we became aware of the concerns to ensure care is safe and to a high standard. I can report those responsible for the poor standards of care have been held to account and we have put new leadership in place."
