We’re waiting for a new Petitions Committee

Petitions had to stop because of the recent general election. Once a new Petitions Committee is set up by the House of Commons, petitions will start again.

Closed petition Create independent body to investigate complaints against NHS staff and bodies

We believe that hospitals & hospital staff have for far too long hid behind a curtain of protection of the NHS when they have made mistakes /not acted in accordance with their code of conduct / care. That needs to end. They need to take full responsibility for their actions & be liable.

More details

We believe that the Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS) / the current complaints system does not work. For example, we believe it doesn’t facilitate a swift second opinion when warranted. A totally independent body must govern this and investigate complaints against all NHS staff and bodies and act as the “failures occur” to minimise harm / pain / suffering and sometimes loss of life. I’m driven to campaign for this change due to my own personal tragic loss.
