The Francis Inquiry report

See our latest work on quality of care and patient experience.

Robert Francis’s report into the failings at the Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust was published in February 2013. Since then, issues of patient safety, quality of care and a culture of collective leadership have been in the public eye more than ever. The King's Fund has worked with  the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to develop its well-led domain, and has been supporting NHS organisations to nurture the sort of leadership that enables positive changes in culture.
