Two hospitals in Lincolnshire have been criticised by a health watchdog after failing to meet any of the national standards expected of them.
The Care Quality Commission says low staffing levels and a lack of training at Lincoln County Hospital & Boston Pilgrim Hospital means patients are being let down.
The findings come as the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced that top-performing NHS managers are to be sent in to failing hospitals. Phil Brewster reports.
