Cancer service wins national award
10:00am Thursday 12th December 2013 in News
COLCHESTER’S health trust has won a national award for supporting breast cancer patients - despite it being investigated over cancer waiting times.
Essex County Hospital's secondary breast cancer nurse service was honoured at the Nursing Network Awards.
Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust, which runs the hospital, was put into special measures by Monitor earlier this month after a report by the Care Quality Commission found cancer patients’ records had been altered.
