Robert Francis QC, the chairman of the inquiry into the scandal at Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust, told ITV News today that it was not his job to demand resignations.
He met the families of some of the people who died at Stafford Hospital to hear why they are calling for the head of the NHS to quit.
ITV News' Special Correspondent Geraint Vincent reports from Stafford:
A public inquiry has blamed a failure 'at every level' of the NHS for the abuses at Stafford Hospital that resulted in hundreds of deaths.
The chair of the inquiry into Mid Staffordshire NHS made 290 recommendations to prevent the 'disaster' of Stafford Hospital occurring again.
Managers at Stafford Hospital accept that there were problems on some of the wards. But they say it's now one of the best in the country.
