Francis Report Event - places still available!

Starts: 2 October 2013

The Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry began as a result of 'serious failings at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust'. The final report was published in February 2013 and has since been the subject of much discussion within health care and mainstream news. 

The report laid out a series of recommendations which will impact all health boards across the UK. These recommendations are summarised by the Inquiry Chairman Robert Francis as follows:

  • Foster a common culture shared by all in the service of putting the patient first;
  • Develop a set of fundamental standards, easily understood and accepted by patients, the
    public and healthcare staff, the breach of which should not be tolerated;
  • Provide professionally endorsed and evidence-based means of compliance with these
    fundamental standards which can be understood and adopted by the staff who have to
    provide the service;
  • Ensure openness, transparency and candour throughout the system about matters of
  • Ensure that the relentless focus of the healthcare regulator is on policing compliance with
    these standards;
  • Make all those who provide care for patients – individuals and organisations – properly
    accountable for what they do and to ensure that the public is protected from those not fit
    to provide such a service;

You can read the executive summary and full report online in order to gain an understanding of the points covered. 

The aim of this event is to provide a forum for the discussion of how the recommendations arising from the report will affect students currently studying nursing or midwifery. All nursing and midwifery students are welcome to attend this stimulating discussion on the topic, with clinical and academic staff leading the floor. 

This event is free but booking is essential due to limited spaces.
