Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry Chaired by Robert Francis QC – Final report – 6 February 2013

Extract from the press statment of the Chairman

“This is a story of appalling and unnecessary suffering of hundreds of people. They were failed by a system which ignored the warning signs and put corporate self interest and cost control ahead of patients and their safety. I have today made 290 recommendations designed to change this culture and make sure that patients come first.

We need a patient centred culture, no tolerance of non compliance with fundamental standards, openness and transparency, candour to patients, strong cultural leadership and caring, compassionate nursing, and useful and accurate information about services.”
