The head of an NHS trust facing special measures after inspectors rated the organisation "inadequate" said they are already "working to address" criticisms.
East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust chief executive Stuart Bain said:
Much of what is in the report we have already recognised and we are working to address.
The report does recognise the committed and caring nature of our staff of which we can be very proud. Our task as leaders of the organisation is now to work with our staff and our partners including the Clinical Commissioning Groups to address the issues that have been raised and ensure we provide the residents of east Kent with high quality health care.
