Failing NHS bosses will go

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned NHS managers cannot expect to keep their jobs if they preside over failings in care.

Mr Hunt, writing in the Sunday Telegraph, said "proper accountability" was needed in the health service.

He was writing ahead of a report into failings at Stafford Hospital, which is expected to be published within months.

There were hundreds more deaths than expected at the hospital between 2005 and 2009.

Some of those deaths were caused by the failings at the hospital.

A public inquiry has been looking at how the failures in care were allowed to happen by managers and regulators.

Ahead of its report, Mr Hunt called for "total openness and transparency when things go wrong", and a change of culture to give greater priority to compassion.
