The failures at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust show the "appalling consequences" of a culture where staff feel they can't raise concerns about patient care, the barrister who led the inquiry into the trust said.
Sir Robert Francis, QC, who is running a review into whistleblowing in the NHS and has launched a call for evidence said:
We need a culture where 'I need to report this' is the thought, foremost in the mind of any NHS worker that has concerns - a culture where concerns are listened to and acted upon.
The Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry showed the appalling consequences for patients when there is a 'closed ranks' culture.
We need to hear from as many people in the NHS as possible, so we can learn more about what we need to do to support staff to raise concerns, and support the NHS to listen to them.
