Judicial Review

Yesterday saw a situation where both of the judicial reviews into the process at Mid Staffs were refused on the grounds of the fragility of existing services at Stafford Hospital. The evidence for this was obtained via a Care Quality Commission inspection which was instigated by the Trust Special Administrators, an unprecedented incident especially when one realises that these are the people who have a statutory right to maintain these services.

You know that when you are in a situation where reason holds no sway and where truth and verisimilitude are of little consequence or value, that politics and power are the prime movers. This situation would not be out of place in some tin-pot third world dictatorship, yet here we reside in the twenty first century United Kingdom.

Shocking indeed
