The Prime Minister says it is not acceptable that no one has been held accountable for the hundreds of deaths at Stafford Hospital.

David Cameron made the comments last night during a visit to India.

It is after an inquiry led by Robert Francis QC failed to blame anyone for the suffering of patients at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust between 2005 and 2009.

Stafford report delay

The administrators of Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust have been granted more time to prepare a report into how the trust should be run. The trust runs Stafford Hospital, where hundreds of patients died needlessly between 2005 and 2009.
