The Health Committee has published a ‘special report’ on patient safety relating to the Committee’s patient safety report published in July 2009 (click here).
The Government responded to the patient safety report on 13 October (click here).
This special report sets out the responses to the patient safety report by the Care Quality Commission and Monitor. It also contains a response by Professor Sir Ian Kennedy (formerly chair of the Healthcare Commission) and a reply to his response from the chairman of the Health Committee.
Of particular interest in the report is Monitor’s responses to various issues around boards highlighted in the original patient safety report.
