Jeremy Hunt: Medway Maritime Hospital needs 'faster progress'

Faster progress is needed to improve a hospital in Kent which has been in special measures for more than a year, the health secretary has said.

Jeremy Hunt met with patients and staff at the Medway Maritime Hospital, which was put into special measures in July 2013.

Concerns had been raised about mortality rates and standards of care.

Chief executive Dr Phillip Barnes said issues would be fixed between two and five years' time.
