Lib Dem MP: Great Ormond Street boss should go

Lynne Featherstone, Liberal Democrat MP for Hornsey and Wood Green, calls for Great Ormond Street Hospital's (GOSH) boss to step down:

"There is now clear evidence that information was withheld from the serious case review into the death of Baby Peter. Key criticisms were edited out and it appears there was an attempt to cover-up the fact the situation was 'clinically risky'.

"The key person in charge in Haringey was dismissed from post. The key managers also lost their jobs. But the chief executive and the managers at GOSH who presided over this 'clinically risky situation' are still in post. Their roles and culpability have never faced proper scrutiny.

"This can be nothing other than a deliberate attempt to hide the management failings, and subvert the serious case review process.


"It is not possible to learn the right lessons unless all relevant and important information has been disclosed, whatever the potential impact on the hospitals and health trusts involved."
