Two previously unpublished reviews seen by The Guardian allegedly detail substandard levels of care at Tameside General Hospital in Greater Manchester.
The paper claims the reports by the NHS' Interim Management and Support team and the North West Utilisation Management Unit, which helps hospitals in the region improve their performance, state that patients have been left in pain and without seeing a doctor for days on end.
The reviews were based on visits in March and April.
The reports are also said to refer to persistent staff shortages, especially at night, and a lack of consultants on wards.
