Most of you will have heard on the news/read on papers about the 'horrid' care at Mid-Staffordshire Hospital and that the report on the public enquiry has just been published.
I am reading the summary of the 'Robert Francis QC' report and in the introduction it says:
-In the end,
-the truth was uncovered in part by attention being paid to the true implications of its
-mortality rates, but mainly because of the persistent complaints made by a very determined
-group of patients and those close to them. This group wanted to know why they and their
-loved ones had been failed so badly.
So....you see, it was 'mainly' the 'very determined' group of patients which sparked the major investigations, if it wasn't for them who know how much longer the horror might have gone on for!
Our voice do bear a weight, but we must keep on and stay united, and the stronger our voice the more it can be heard.
