Consultation into plans to make Mid Staffs NHS Trust more 'sustainable'

Dr. Hugo Mascie Taylor and Alan Bloom, from accountancy firm Ernst and Young, will head the administrators.

The consultation will last 45 days followed by a 10 week review period, before any changes can be implemented.


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.
