Envy of the World Update

Jeremy Hunt is currently giving a statement to the House on today’s independent report investigating a hospital in Morecambe Bay. It found:

  • 11 unnecessary deaths at Furness general hospital between 2004 and 2013
  • “a culture of denial, collusion and incompetence”
  • maternity unit was “seriously dysfunctional”
  • midwives behaviour so reckless they were nicknamed “the musketeers”
  • “a series of failures at almost every level”
  • “clear evidence of distortion of the truth in responses to investigation”
  • “inexcusable” and “unprofessional” collusion by staff
  • “repeated failures to be honest and open with patients, relatives and others raising concerns. The trust was not honest and open with external bodies or the public”
