NHS: Learning from Mistakes – Barron’s contribution

The day before our Kevin stood down from the Standards committee he made this contribution :

In welcoming the statement, may I say that, in my experience on the General Medical Council and on the Health Committee, the biggest cloud that hangs over the culture of non-reporting in the national health service is litigation? Last year it cost the British taxpayer £1.1 billion, £395 million of which went on legal costs alone. Should we not be looking at a no-fault liability scheme inside the national health service so that we can really encourage cultural change?


Couldn’t agree more Kev – “cultural change” is definately what’s needed in Rotherham , especially in the Labour Party and our 3 not fit for purpose MPs.

What a coincidence that their “defamation trial” date has just been announced too. Anyone know who’s paying for this “litigation” ?
