Among those receiving an apology are the family of 73-year-old Colin White, who was admitted to the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch, in July 2009. His daughter Kim White, from Gloucester, described how there was "no respect or dignity" for her father during his stay at the hospital.
All we ever wanted was an apology, and the acknowledgement that my father was treated appallingly.
We also didn't want anyone else to go through the hell that my father went through.
