Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust has been named as a 'high risk' by the Care Quality Commission's new Chief Inspector of Hospitals.
Professor Sir Mike Richards will introduce radical changes to the way hospitals in England are inspected, following a review carried out by Bruce Keogh earlier this week.
The changes will be introduced by the end of next month.
The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and the Heart of England NHS Trust were also named amongst the first 18 trusts to be inspected.
