The report points out the irony of the NHS focus on “just” culture when it is prepared to abandon the people it has harmed in this way. It suggests that the NHS owes a “moral duty of care ” to attend to the needs it creates for people affected by avoidable harm in the NHS to support their wellbeing, trust in the NHS and

    Families whose loved ones’ bodies were sexually abused in a hospital mortuary have yet to receive any compensation, because the Department of Health and Social Care has not signed off a proposed framework. A family member involved in the case claimed the delay was due to a “chaotic, splenetic mess of a government… [which] can’t get an arse on a seat long enough to approve it”. Former hospital maintenance supervisor David Fuller is serving life sentences for the murder of two women, committed two decades before he went on to commit sexual offences against 101 dead women and girls in h

    At 9.16am Florence Wilkinson gave birth to a healthy baby boy by planned caesarean section. The team of NHS doctors and midwives worked like a well-oiled machine, performing what to them was a standard operation, while also showing real kindness. After a short stint in a close observation bay, Florence was moved onto the postnatal ward. Still anaesthetised, Florence was completely reliant on her partner Ben to help her recover from the birth and feed her son in his first hours of life. Yet just a few hours later, the scene was very different. Due to Covid protocol, Ben was not able to sta
