Keogh mortality review ' Risk Summit video' - Tameside Hospital.

We thought our readers might be interested in watching this NHS choices video about Tameside Hospital, presented by the panel set up by Sir Bruce Keogh, which met on 1 July 2013. The 'Risk Summit' was chaired by Richard Barker, NHS England North.

Gill Harris, who chaired the 'Rapid Responsive Review Panel', describes  the hospital as an "organisation that was failing to learn (from previous reviews/action plans) and embed changes in practice." She also says the hospital was an organisation that couldn't give full assurance regarding the quality of care provided.

The lay representative on the panel, Margaret Hughes, says in the video that the hospital governor's lacked basic knowledge of their role and therefore were unable to carry out their statutory responsibilities.
