NHS 'cover-up': Jeremy Hunt 'not happy with CQC inspections'

21 June 2013 Last updated at 08:00 BST

The standard of inspections by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) is not good enough, the health secretary has said.

Two former bosses of the CQC have denied allegations that they suppressed a report on the regulator's failings over the inspection of Furness General Hospital.

Jeremy Hunt said the new management team, including a new chief inspector of hospitals, was "moving very fast to turn it round".
