NHS staff 'do their best for patients'

Too many hospitals are coasting along, settling for meeting minimum standards, according to the health secretary.

In a speech on Friday, Jeremy Hunt will attack a culture of "complacency" and "low aspirations" which he believes is holding back the NHS in England.

Jo Webber from the NHS Confederation, which represents health bodies, has said she does not recognise Mr Hunt's description.

''People come to do the best they possibly can for patients,'' she added.
