A hospital trust has been rated as 'good' overall following a re-inspection by a health watchdog.
The James Paget University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust was praised by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who have upgraded its assessment of the trust's safety measure from 'requires improvement' to 'good'.
It comes after CQC inspectors returned to the JPH in Gorleston to check improvements had been made in identified areas.
Areas that were highlighted included end-of-life care, maternity, children and young people's care and gynaecology.
Christine Allen, chief executive of the hospital trust, said: 'This latest CQC report not only reaffirms that we are a good hospital, it also demonstrates that we are a learning organisation committed to continuous improvement.
