The Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust Public Inquiry, led by Robert Francis QC, probed a culture where complacency pervaded, poor standards of care were allowed to persist, patients were harmed, and staff who tried to speak out were ignored or punished. Patients First and Foremost (Cm. 8576, ISBN 9780101857628), set out the initial response of England's health and social care system to the Inquiry report and outlined a radical plan to end decades of complacency. In the eight months since that initial response a great deal has changed, including: the Care Quality Commission has appointed three Chief Inspectors of hospitals, adult social care and primary care; the Chief Inspector of Hospitals has begun a first wave of inspections of 18 Trusts; and the Care Quality Commission has consulted on a new system of ratings with patient care and safety at its heart. These national measures are important steps in making an irreversible change to the culture of England's health and care system so that the toleration of poor care can never again be a reality in the NHS. This response to the Health Select Committee's report (HC 657, session 2013-14, ISBN 9780215062345) answers the questions raised, and seeks to describe how the Government intends to build on the rapid early progress. It is published alongside, and reflects, the Government's full response to the Inquiry (Cm. 8754, ISBN 9780101875424) which responds to all 290 of the Inquiry's recommendations. The overwhelming majority of these are accepted.After Francis: Making a Difference Great Britain: Department of Health. After Francis: making a difference in practice should be seen as a failure of enforcement by commissioners as well as a failure of performance by service providers.
