Norwich South MP Clive Lewis used his first outing at Prime Minister’s question time at lunchtime today to urge the release of the report into the Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust (NSFT) which he said raised “serious questions about patient safety and care, due to cuts to services”.
He told MPs that the “duty of candour should apply equally to NHS management as it does to NHS frontline staff” and urged Mr Cameron to call for its publication.
Mr Cameron did not explicitly back Mr Lewis’ call, but said there were two things needed – “to uncover bad practice and turn it around and then back that up with the resources the NHS needs.”
The NSFT has refused to release the dossier arguing it is not in the public interest and claiming that doing so would stop workers from raising issues in future.
