Jane Ball: 'The Francis inquiry tells us inadequate staffing costs lives'


The Francis Report merely confirmed what common sense already told us. None of the Francis Report recommendations have been acted upon so what was the point of it. Until there are minimum staffing numbers, improved staff-patient ratios, regulation of HCAs, managers being accountable for failings, ward sisters actually looking after patients, staff not being bullied then management, the unions and the govt will get away scot-free and no-one will ever be held accountable.
