Stafford Hospital: Robert Francis QC statement in full
There needs to be a "fundamental change" in the culture of the NHS to ensure patients are cared for properly, a public inquiry has said.
The report by Robert Francis QC comes after a £13m investigation into the Stafford Hospital scandal.
Mr Francis said: "They (Stafford Hospital patients) were failed by a system which ignored the warning signs and put corporate self-interest and cost control ahead of patients and their safety."
