A team of doctors, nurses and patient representatives will visit Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust today, as part of their review into death rates.

They have been called in by the medical director of the health service, Sir Bruce Keogh. 14 hospital trusts are to have visits in the wake of the scandal at Stafford, where hundreds of people were said to have died needlessly.
