Stafford hospital future: ‘consultation’ next week but downgrade already ‘official’

leave a comment »

For those of you following the events around the falsely-maligned Stafford hospital and the government’s opportunistic decision to put Mid Staffs Trust into special administration – or for that matter, for any who care about the NHS and its treatment by this woeful coalition – the following information will be of vital interest. Please share widely.

In February, immediately after the publication of the Francis report, the government took the opportunity to put Mid Staffs into special administration, with a view to breaking up or downgrading the hospital, while (they thought) few people would care about the hospital’s fate because of the dismal (and unfounded) picture being painted by the media’s version of the Francis report.
