East Kent Hospitals have improved according to the Care Quality Commission
The William Harvey Hospital
The watchdog has now increased the safety rating for the William Harvey Hospital, in Kent, from inadequate to requires improvement.
The hospital, run by the East Kent Hospitals University NHS Foundation Trust, was criticised by the CQC in October after staff and members of the public raised concerns about a lack of infection control amid outbreaks of Covid-19.
It could also face a police prosecution and was fined a total of £761,000 after being prosecuted by the CQC earlier this year over the death of baby Harry Richford in 2017.
