NHS trust says action has been taken

Barts Health NHS Trust, which runs Newham University Hospital, said action has been taken to ensure patient care was improved after the hospital failed to meet four out of five standards in patient care.

"A CQC inspection in August 2012 found minor concerns around the care, privacy and nutritional support provided to elderly patients at Newham University Hospital and we have since put a comprehensive action plan in place to address these concerns."
