Robert Francis QC published his Inquiry report on 24 February 2010 into the Mid-Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust. This followed from concerns about standards of care at the Trust, and an investigation and report published by the Healthcare Commission in March 2009.
Evidence was heard from patients, their relatives and staff to inform his report and the recommendations he makes. Both the Department of Health and the Trust Board has accepted the recommendations of the site in full.
Three reportS have been published to support all NHS organisations to learn from and repond to. These reportS help embed effective governance and detect and prevent such failures occurring again.
