The future NHS will have a more open culture, with better information for patients and the public. That information must be credible and provided on a basis which is honest and consistent.
Like me, the public has a deep and abiding affection for the NHS, but scandals such as Mid Staffordshire have affected trust in it. We need to get that trust back.
We feel strongly that if NHS trusts are caught acting fraudulently about their performance on areas such as death rates or waiting times, they should be criminally liable.
