Annual review of ‘avoidable deaths’ | Daily Mail Online.

The health service had to act to stamp out avoidable deaths: ‘This is the biggest scandal in global healthcare. Why hasn’t the health service adopted the kinds of standards we now take for granted in the airline and nuclear industry?’ 

This week a report on the treatment of NHS staff who tried to air their care concerns will be published by Sir Robert Francis, who led the a damning report into the Mid Staffs Hospital scandal which found that at least 1,200 patients died because of poor care at the hospital.

Mr Hunt promised more protection for whistleblowers to encourage them to speak out about power standards of care.

‘On high death rates, failing hospitals and whistleblowing, we are calling time on the cover-up culture and ushering in a new era of transparency,’ Mr Hunt said.
