MP's concern as Colchester Hospital declares 'major incident'
Colchester Hospital has declared a "major incident" following an inspection on Wednesday by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which raised "safeguarding concerns".
The hospital trust said the major incident is likely to last a week, and has asked patients to visit Accident & Emergency only if they have a "serious or life-threatening condition".
The local Liberal Democrat MP, Sir Bob Russell, told the BBC he had been contacted separately on Friday by a patient with concerns about the hospital.
