Applying the lessons of the Francis Inquiries

23 Febuary 2015

The Department of Health has published Sir Robert Francis review of whistleblowing in the NHS, ‘Freedom to Speak Up’.


AIHO responds to the BBC London's 'Inside Out' programme

3 March 2015

The complaint comes after the broadcast of 'Inside Out' in the London region. The programme, which featured a story about patient safety in independent hospitals, made a number of misleading and questionable claims. It was based on a report published last year by the Centre for Health and the Public Interest, which itself contained dubious assertions about the independent sector.

In the interests of balance, impartiality and accuracy, we believe the BBC should have contacted AIHO, as the representative industry body, in order to ensure that a balanced and fully factual programme was transmitted.
