Calls for Stafford accountability

News Shopper: A report into serious failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust is being published A report into serious failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust is being published

The campaigner who kick-started exposure of the Mid-Staffordshire health care scandal has called for people to be held to account for its failings as a landmark report on "shocking" care at the hospital trust was due to be published.

Julie Bailey, who set up the campaign group Cure the NHS after her mother Bella Bailey, 86, died at Stafford Hospital in 2007, said relatives of the victims wanted to see people held responsible for the scandal.

"We won't be going anywhere until there is a safer NHS, but things have got to change at the top. We are looking for accountability for this, we can't lose all these lives and nobody be held to account," she told ITV Daybreak. "We can't allow that."

Miss Bailey was speaking as the public inquiry into the scandal, headed by Robert Francis QC, was expected to propose sweeping reforms of the regulatory bodies which, despite many warnings, failed to detect serious failings in patient care for more than four years or intervene soon enough to stop them.

The public inquiry was ordered after it was revealed that between 400 and 1,200 more people died than would have been expected at Stafford Hospital from 2005 to 2009, amid "appalling" standards of care. Patients were left for hours sitting in their own faeces, food and drink was left out of reach and hygiene was so poor that relatives had to clean toilets themselves.

In addition to basic care errors there was a string of clinical blunders including botched operations, misdiagnoses and drugs not given or given late.

The inquiry will reportedly recommend that hospitals should face tough new scrutiny by teams of inspectors which include doctors and nurses. It is also expected that Mr Francis, a specialist in medical legal issues, will recommend a "duty of candour" that would see fines or threat of closure used against hospitals that fail to tell patients if treatment went wrong.

The BBC said the Government is expected to announce the creation of a new post of chief inspector of hospitals in response to the inquiry.

Miss Bailey said: "When mum went in, we both believed the NHS was something to be proud of, we both believed that the hospital would be a safe place. We quickly learned after four days that mum was in fact in a very dangerous place. She needed protecting in what should have been a place of safety."

NHS Confederation chief executive Mike Farrar warned against recommendations for more external regulation of hospitals, including the possible introduction of a new post of chief inspector of hospitals. He said: "We shouldn't be relying on external inspectors to create the right climate and the right attitude in hospitals. Staff give really, really great care when they feel really, really valued - not really, really inspected."

Fluoridation X-Files.. Criminal SHA Bosses to be held responsible for deaths of relatives

FAMILIES CALL FOR BOSSES TO BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR DEATHS OF RELATIVES.

JONATHAN BROWN WEDNESDAY 06 FEBRUARY 2013.

NHS's darkest day: Five more hospitals under investigation for neglect as report blames 'failings at every level' for 1,200 deaths at Stafford Hospital.

The families of patients who died after receiving substandard care at Stafford Hospital have demanded that senior managers – including the current head of the NHS – be held responsible for the deaths of their loved ones.

Families called for the resignation of Sir David Nicholson, NHS chief executive, who was head of Shropshire and Staffordshire Strategic Health Authority which was responsible for Mid Staffs NHS Trust at the time of the scandal. Some also demanded the head of Peter Carter, general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing, after the report’s damning verdict on nursing standards.

“The point about criminal prosecution, which I think most people feel, is that perhaps more than a thousand people died because of poor care. No one has been brought to book and that feels wrong,” he told Sky News.

Sir David Nicholson.

Former chief executive of West Midlands Strategic Health Authority and the Shropshire and Staffordshire Strategic Health Authority. He was responsible for supervising Mid Staffs NHS Trust from 2005 to 2006. Yesterday he repeated his apology for the poor care experienced by patients, adding: “But apologies are not enough – we need action, we need to make things happen.”

Cynthia Bower Former chief executive of West Midlands Strategic Health Authority.

The report concluded that Ms Bower’s priorities were directed at finance and restructuring rather than care. “The protection of patients does not figure expressly at all in her priorities, although she would doubtless argue that such a concept underlay all of them,” it found.

Martin Yeates Former chief executive of Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust.

Salary: £180,000.

The report said he failed to appreciate the seriousness of the Trust’s problems and the significance of the mortality figures. "HE WAS THAT MOST DANGEROUS OF LEADERS: ONE WHO WAS PERSUASIVE BUT INEFFECTIVE," IT SAID. RECEIVED £400,000 PAY-OFF AND £1M PENSION POT.

I WARNED STAFFORD BOSSES OF HIGH DEATH RATES, CLAIMS PROFESSOR

By Rosa Silverman8:28AM GMT 18 Jan.

The hospital became engulfed in a scandal after an investigation uncovered up to 1,200 "excess" deaths and a catalogue of failings in patient care between 2005 and 2008.

On a number of occasions from July 2007 onwards, the chief executive of the Mid Staffs Health Care Trust, to which the hospital belonged, had been told in writing that the number of deaths at the hospital appeared high, it was claimed.

THE WARNINGS WERE GIVEN BY PROF SIR BRIAN JARMAN, AN INTERNATIONAL AUTHORITY ON HOSPITAL PERFORMANCE, WHO HAD DEVISED A DEATH RATE ALERT SYSTEM.

His real–time mortality alert system, warning hospitals if death rates were too high, showed that Mid Staffs had a rate above the national average. In 2006, its rate was 27 per cent above the average.

DATA SHOW THAT OTHERS WOULD ALSO HAVE BEEN AWARE OF THE DEATH RATES, AS THE ALERT SYSTEM WAS ACCESSED BY STAFF AT THE TRUST AND IN THE WEST MIDLANDS STRATEGIC HEALTH AUTHORITY REGION AS MANY AS 8,000 TIMES BETWEEN 2005 AND 2009.

The trust was also accused of changing the way it recorded or coded patient deaths, making the figures appear better than they were.

In 2007, it logged less than one per cent of patients admitted to hospital under the NHS palliative care code, which denotes that they would be expected to die. After a change in coding, the following year nearly 35 per cent of patients were reportedly palliative. The trust has denied that the coding was inaccurate.
