James Paget Hospital passes CQC inspection
The James Paget Hospital in Lowestoft has now passed an inspection from the Care Quality Commission.

The latest report is said to be complimentary of they way in which medication is handled.The warning notices concerning the standards of nutrition and assessing quality have been lifted and the hospital will undergo a further inspection concentrating on care and welfare later this month.A spokesman for the hospital said that the findings from the CQC’s latest inspection were indicative that the hospital was on ‘the road to recovery’.Sharon Allison, a medical injury lawyer at Ashtons Legal says: “It is pleasing that the James Paget have raised their standards sufficiently to satisfy the Care Quality Commission’s requirements. Hopefully such progress will continue which will provide patients with the reassurance and confidence they need to use the service”.
