The outcry has prompted Mr Hunt to announce a ‘rapid review’ of the use of gross negligence manslaughter charges in medicine.

YES But what about ORGANISATIONAL FAILURES UNDERSTAFFED UNDER-RESOURCED SERVICES In other words frontline individuals will still be scapegoated and we can nit pick the actual charges COME ON JEREMY Does the buck ever go back to management or even to yourself as the health secretary?
