Previous independent inquiry

The previous independent inquiry, also chaired by Robert Francis QC, looked at the care provided by Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust between January 2005 and March 2009.  

The inquiry considered individual cases of patient care, so that further lessons not already identified by previous investigations could be learned.

The inquiry reported on 24 February 2010. A copy of its final report, along with other background information, can be found here.
