Families meet with PM over Stafford Hospital standards

Families affected by the appalling standards of care at Stafford hospital will meet with the Prime Minister David Cameron at Downing Street later this afternoon.

They will seek assurances that the government will act to implement the recommendations of the Public Inquiry report due out on Wednesday.

It's expected the findings of Robert Francis QC's report will be damning of the failures at Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust. Regulatory bodies were in place but no action was taken as the death toll climbed on the wards between 2005 and 2009.

Among those attending this afternoon will be Julie Bailey, whose mother – Bella, was one of those who died. She founded the campaign group Cure the NHS who have long argued for better standards of oversight and governance.

The report itself has been described as one of the most important documents on the NHS in a generation. Today the body representing NHS managers said the report would result in a more "patient-centred" health service.
