Meanwhile, Britain’s National Health Service working as well as ever

The NHS has still not learned from the Mid-Staffs scandal, according to a damning official report which says more than 3,000 inspections last year uncovered basic failings at care homes and hospitals.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) said hospitals have made “no improvement” in monitoring the quality of care, nor in ensuring that patients are kept safe or treated with dignity and respect.

Inspectors were “alarmed” to see the way patients were treated, its annual report says, with “unacceptable” failures to protect the most vulnerable, and a deterioration in standards from an already poor position.

The excoriating report follows deepening concern about the care given in hospitals and care homes, and the “normalisation of cruelty” in some institutions.
