Nic Rigby of the BBC reports:
A mental health trust has become the first in England to be put in special measures.
NHS regulator Monitor will send a team to take over the management of Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.
The decision comes after the Care Quality Commission (CQC) reported that the trust was “not a safe, effective or responsive service”.
The BBC understands senior staff have been told of the decision by email and a public statement is expected later.
These external experts will work with the existing senior management team at the trust to resolve its problems.
An inspection by the CQC identified a number of serious issues, including concerns about the safety of services, staffing levels and leadership at the trust.
