Scandal hit hospital back in the news

The children's accident and emergency department at Stafford County Hospital have been suspended after senior staff declared it was "not clinically safe".
The hospital previously came into the public spotlight between 2005 and 2008 after hundreds of patients died through "appalling" levels of care and now due to staff shortages have been forced to close the doors of the accident and emergency department to people aged under 18.
In Lincolnshire, staff shortages have also caused the closure of accident and emergency at Grantham Hospital from 6.30pm to 9am every night over the next three months and have caused local residents to hold an evening vigil in protest.
