About the inquiry

You can read the full report on the Mid Staff public inquiry website (opens a new window)

The public inquiry into the serious failings at Mid Staffordshire was announced on 9 June 2010.

The Inquiry, lead by Robert Francis QC, looked at the role of the commissioning, supervisory and regulatory organisations that monitored Mid Staffordshire between 2005 and 2009.

The report covers why problems were not identified at the trust sooner as well as the important lessons that need to be learned to ensure patient care and safety.

Our involvement in the inquiry

We were a core participant of the inquiry. Core participants are organisations who provide vital evidence that is central to the inquiry.

We began giving evidence on 16 May 2012. Dame Jo Williams, former CQC Chair, was the first to appear in person before Robert Francis QC. She was followed by other members of senior staff from CQC, Kay Sheldon (a member of our Board) as well as former staff from the Healthcare Commission.
