England's Chief Inspector of Hospitals has recommended that Tameside Hospital NHS Foundation Trust should remain in special measures, following his first inspection of the quality of its services.
The trust had been placed into special measures by Sir Bruce Keogh in July last year after concerns were raised about mortality rates, emergency care, staffing levels, patient experience and leadership.
While health watchdog the CQC found that some improvements had been made at the trust since then, there has not yet been enough progress to recommend that the trust leave special measures at this time.
