A private hospital in Surrey has suspended children's surgery after the health watchdog raised "serious concerns" about the service.
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) demanded immediate improvements at the BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital in Guildford, to "protect people coming to harm" following an inspection between December 2012 and January 2013.
In response, the hospital has voluntarily suspended children's surgical admissions and apologised for the "entirely unacceptable" failings.
