Are you drowning in a tide of inquiries? The Mid Staffs public inquiry appears to have been going on for years and is not due out now until January. At the same time a new inquiry into the reorganisation of child heart surgery has been ordered by Jeremy Hunt to report next February, after a CQC inquiry into a series of deaths at the Bristol Children's Hospital following heart surgery.
It was deaths at the same hospital 20 years ago that lead to another massive public inquiry, the founding of clinical governance and the proposed reorganization that still hasn’t taken place. There may even be a second judicial review into the reorganization to go with Hunt’s inquiry.
