Nursing director's report reveals major concerns at Alder Hey


The report - released on Thursday afternoon by Alder Hey Children’s Foundation Trust after it was obtained by Channel 4 News - was presented to the trust board in December. There is inevitably a tension between Trusts discovering [internally] their own problems, and those Trusts releasing such information publically. It is catch 22: unless ALL Trusts publish negative material [discovered internally] about their own performance, those that did that would be compared unfavourably to those that withheld such information. But if everyone published the information about shortcomings, then the public would be informed and overall I think the information would promote service improvement, and make it harder for things such as Mid Staffs to happen.
