Exclusive: NMC denied access to data identifying Gosport nurses


I am confused. The NMC assure us that their new way of working is to get the referrer to complete a “checklist” that a senior member of staff signs off to show the trust has fulfilled a thorough and proper investigation locally first. The referrer should provide the evidence for the case they are referring. It is supposed to be a risk assessment to look at PRESENT risk to the public and “not punishing for past mistakes”!! If the process is actually not changing in its ethos then. As registrants have to be, our regulaotnshouod be open and honest about this. Sadly by this article it seems nothing is changing. Can a trust that has been responsible for allowing such errors to occur be trusted to present a true picture of the real isssues or will there be a risk of scapegoating in order to minimise their own liability? Caution is needed After the death of Jack adcock Leicester Royal Infirmary continued with similiar failings and another young boy, Krishna Saujani, died 4years later in similiar circumstances. No learning from past mistakes??
