Prime Minister David Cameron's official spokesman has said today's NHS trust report reflects:
"A Government determined to look very carefully at where there are pockets of poor practice, where standards are not high enough, where patients and their families are being failed."
He added: "Poor standards are just unacceptable... Of course many people get absolutely excellent treatment in the NHS, but there are failings. They need to be identified and measures put in place to deal with them."
Eleven NHS hospital trusts in England are to be put under special measures for "fundamental breaches of care", the Government said today.
