Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust has been subject to several reviews and investigations, after a highly critical report by the Healthcare Commission in 2009 revealed a catalogue of failings, and said "appalling standards" had put patients at risk:
- Between 400 and 1,200 more people died than would have been expected between 2005 and 2008
- An independent inquiry into events at the trust in February 2010 found it had "routinely neglected patients"
- The Trust has paid out more than £1 million in compensation to 120 victims of abuse, or their families
