NHS campaigner Julie Bailey awarded CBE in New Year Honours

NHS campaigner Julie Bailey has dedicated her CBE to her late mother - whose death promoted a campaign to expose the neglect of patients at Stafford Hospital.

Ms Bailey founded the campaign group Cure The NHS after being appalled by the care she witnessed her mother receive at the hospital.

Ms Bailey has been awarded a CBE for her services to the care of older people in the New Year Honours List.

She said: "I am deeply honoured to receive this award as an important acknowledgement of our struggle for a better NHS. I am certain that my mum would be extremely proud of me and it is to her I dedicate not only this award but also our continuing struggle for a safer health service."
