Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry Report PowerPoint

12 February 2013
Following the publication of the final report of the public inquiry into Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust on 6 February 2013, the RCN Policy and International team has produced a short power point presentation for members summarising the main points and recommendations based on our initial analysis. This presentation is primarily intended to support RCN Board and Branch level discussions on the report.
  • Government to respond within one month
  • All commissioning, service provision regulatory and ancillary organisations in healthcare have to consider the findings/ recommendations of the report and decide how to apply them to their own work
  • Each of these organisations must announce “at the earliest practicable time” their decision on whether they accept the recommendations and what they intend to do to implement those accepted, and after that, on a regular basis but not less than once a year, publish in a report information regarding the progress in relation to its planned actions
  • The House of Commons Health Select Committee will review the performance of organisations taking actions with regard to the recommendations in the report
