Under-fire Basildon hospital 'improving'

The chief executive of an Essex hospital criticised by the Care Quality Commission has said improvements were being made.

Basildon Hospital was warned its services for children must improve after they were found "completely unacceptable" by the health regulator.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) visited Basildon Hospital after a girl, 10, died of a suspected drugs error.

Chief executive Clare Panniker said they were addressing the issues.
