BMA: CQC review is 'important step' for the NHS
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) has published a list of 24 hospitals in England where it believes patients could be most at risk of poor care.
The health watchdog looked at a range of data including hospital safety, death rates and patient surveys.
The CQC will use the information to help it to decide which hospitals should be made a priority for inspectors.
Dr Mark Porter, Chair of the British Medical Association, welcomed the review saying it was an "important step" for the NHS in terms of transparency and risk management.
