Ofsted-style inspections 'will help NHS transparency'

Speaking to Daybreak the Health Secretary has said that the new 'Ofsted-style' inspections of hospitals will help transparency throughout the NHS.

This week the new chief inspector of hospitals started his first inspections and this is a completely transparent Ofsted-style regime. What that means is that there is then huge pressure on people like me and NHS leaders because I'm coming in and being interviewed by you and you're saying 'well how are you getting on? Are these hospitals being turned round?

And that creates the pressure that means finally something is being done.
