Great Ormond Street Hospital have refuted allegations that they mislead the inquiry into Baby P's death:
A spokesperson said: "Great Ormond Street Hospital has repeatedly apologised for any failings in the care of Peter Connelly. When a child dies, learning the lessons is the first priority and, with hindsight, there are things that we could have done differently. We are, however, absolutely clear that we never sought to mislead any inquiry into his tragic death."
Tessa Blackstone, chair of the GOSH Trust, spoke of her support for Dr Collins:
The chair of the Trust Baroness Tessa Blackstone said "The Trust Board has complete confidence in Dr Collins, she is a first class CEO. As a Board, we have confidence that the Trust has never sought to mislead any inquiry into the death of a child. The non executive directors have met Ms Featherstone to discuss her concerns with her. We did not accept her views."
