"Unimaginable Suffering" for Patients "Routinely Neglected" in NHS Hospitals
UK (NHS) HOSPITAL CAUSED UNIMAGINABLE SUFFERING
Patients 'routinely neglected' at NHS hospital where hundreds died in squalor
"The Health Secretary, Andy Burnham, yesterday described the appalling treatment of patients at Staffordhospital as "ultimately a local failure". This misses the point. For one thing, Stafford is not the only NHS hospital that has put patients' lives at risk in recent years. Basildon and Colchester hospitals were also discovered to have jeopardised safety in 2009."
