As ever, once a cover up enters the public domain it becomes the story and I suspect that the attempt to cover up a critical health inspection report will run and run. Two more names emerged yesterday of people who believed that the integrity of the failing Care Quality Commission was more important than the lives of babies!
I will never understand the lack of compassion and the devious criminality of these women but then what was the Health Secretary (Andy Burnham I believe) doing while all of this was happening? We have had many complaints about Health Care during his watch or at least the watch of the socialists in charge of the health system.
The tick box culture which seemed to replace traditional nursing during these dreadful years did not happen accidently. It was devised by someone or some people and they should bear the responsibility. In my opinion we should be looking at the Labour politicians, Sir David Nicholson (the man with no shame) and a few other layers lower down the pecking order.
This comes at the same time that news is emerging of 1000 (yes one thousand) severance deals costing the public purse £28 million to prevent ex-staff from whistleblowing! Just what is happening in this country behind closed doors which would cause 1000 people to want to expose health care practice?
I believe that this is the proof that, at the moment, there is an undercurrent of evil which would probably shock us all and it probably will. There is no honour amongst thieves and once we can uncover one layer of criminality others will follow. If these women were so motivated to cover up the death of 14 babies what else would they cover up? Were they covering up for themselves or for the whole system? Just what culture could possibly warp their beliefs so horribly that they would got to these lengths to hide the facts of these deaths from the parents of the kids?
Four women have been named so far.....!
