The Care Quality Commission is once again under the spotlight after allegations were made in an independent report that its former bosses covered up a failure to investigate a hospital where mothers and babies died through neglect.
The regulator is facing accusations that it deliberately suppressed an internal review that highlighted weaknesses in its inspections of University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Trust.
The CQC’s managers were so concerned about how damning the review would be that they ordered it should never be made public and that it should be destroyed.
What do you think should be the response to the CQC’s Morecambe Bay cover-up?
