"The voices of the vulnerable will be heard", Government statement on Gosport enquiry
The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, gave a statement to the Commons about the Gosport Independent Panel findings. The report will be published today.
The review, of more than 800 death certificates from the Gosport War Memorial Hospital is led by former Bishop of Liverpool James Jones. Focussing on deaths of patients under the care of Department of Medicine for Elderly People, the Panel initially planned to report in December 2017, but the deadline was extended when the number of families coming forward exceeded expectations.
