Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt says the worst NHS hospitals in England need to be given help to improve by the "brightest and best managers".

The government has announced plans for leaders from top-performing hospitals to be sent into failing ones to try to improve them.

He said: "People who have led our best all-round hospitals are the perfect people to go in and help turn around the ones that are not giving us the standards we require."
