Top performing NHS managers from hospitals in Birmingham are to be brought in to turnaround two hospitals that are "failing" elsewhere.
After the Stafford Hospital scandal, a number of hospitals including George Eliot Hospital and Burton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust were both put under special measure - because of high mortality rates.
Now they're been paired with University Hospitals Birmingham, which will act as a mentor.
Rather than managers writing reports on failing hospitals, the government says the new scheme should result in practical changes to improve patient standards.
