Patients and their families have given Lynn’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital a clean bill of health.
Last week the hospital was placed into special measures by regulatory body Monitor, which has also appointed a new management team.
We visited the Gayton Road site to find out the experience of patients.
Patrick Shaw, 71, of Dersingham, was full of praise for the hospital and its staff.
He said: “I have had operations here and never found anything wrong. The nursing staff are excellent, the food was really good and the surgeon was a great man.
“It is a great place to come and I hope they pass future inspections.”
Hunstanton man Michael Hughes, 52, has also supported the hospital.
He said: “They looked after my mum in 1995 and the care was very good.
“They do a brilliant job.
“I think they are running down the NHS so they can privatise it.”
Jane Armstrong, 79, of Downham, was being treated within two weeks of her referral.
She said: “You can’t beat a two week call-up for service on the NHS.
“I have always had excellent treatment here. Everyone is always very kind, polite and helpful.
“I was surprise the hospital received such heavy criticism.”
Ann Butcher, 50, of Holbeach, says her parents are treated regularly at the Queen Elizabeth.
She said: “The health care my parents have received has always been good. When I take my mum to A & E the nursing staff were good although there was a delay.
“The number of staff levels have always seemed quite high.”
Alison Mitchell, 42, of South Wootton, has given birth to her five children in the hospital’s maternity department.
With five children has come a few trips to the A and E department along with dentistry department.
She said: “My experience has always been very positive.
“I have never had any complaints.
