A public inquiry into the serious failings of an NHS hospital, where patients suffered "appalling" treatment, will recommend an overhaul of regulation to ensure poor managers are replaced and better training for nurses and healthcare assistants, the Sunday Telegraph reported.
The £11 million inquiry, which was commissioned in 2010, examined what went wrong at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust between January 2005 and March 2009. Inquiry chair Robert Francis QC said the report will be published later this month.
