The health secretary praised staff at the West Suffolk Hospital during a visit to discuss patient safety in the NHS.
Jeremy Hunt commended staff at the Bury St Edmunds hospital for their efforts following the West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust’s latest outstanding Care Quality Commission rating.
Mr Hunt was also told about new equipment and tools which are being used to improve patient safety at the hospital.
He said: “I was hugely impressed by their commitment to improving patient safety - in particular the push to ensure technology to benefit patients is used right across the trust, whether through innovative apps or electronic records.
“Staff should be rightly proud of the outstanding rating from the CQC - and the rest of the NHS should take note of their commitment to improve beyond outstanding to ‘world-leading’. ”
