Pressure builds on Great Ormond Street Hospital as second inquiry author joins criticisms

Yesterday I blogged about Lynne Featherstone‘s call for Jane Collins to quit as Chief Executive of Great Ormond Street Hospital following revelations that key information was withheld from the first inquiry into Baby Peter’s death and, despite the Hospital’s claims to the contrary, the public statement from the chair of the second inquiry that he was not shown the full evidence either.

Today The Guardian has a damning verdict from the author of that first inquiry, Edi Carmi:

The author of the serious case review, Edi Carmi, said she was shocked by the BBC’s report and that much of the edited material concerned issues fundamental to her inquiry.

So the author of the first inquiry says fundamental information was withheld from her and the chair of the second inquiry says that Great Ormond Street Hospital is wrong to say it handed over the full information to him.

And the reaction of the hospital trustees to all this? So far, they say they can’t see that the hospital has done anything wrong. Hmm.
