Families meet with the PM
RELATIVES of patients who died at a scandal-hit Stafford Hospital have met with Prime Minister David Cameron ahead of the publication of a report into standards of care.
The families used yesterday's private meeting at 10 Downing Street to seek assurances that the Government will implement the recommendations of the £11 million inquiry into failings at the hospital by barrister Robert Francis.
Mr Francis is expected to recommend wide-ranging reforms of the NHS in his report, due to be published tomorrow.
Between 400 and 1,200 more people died than would have been expected in a three-year period from 2005 to 2008.
