The current bosses of an NHS regulator are set to be summoned by MPs to discuss an alleged cover-up over the deaths of babies at a Cumbria hospital.
On Thursday the Care Quality Commission named the people accused of suppressing a report on its failings over the inspection of Furness General Hospital.
MPs want to question the CQC’s chief executive and chairman – but CEO David Behan defended his handling of events.
The health secretary said he had confidence in the new management team.
… More than 30 families have now taken legal action against Furness General – run by Morecambe Bay NHS Trust – in relation to baby and maternal deaths and injuries from 2008.
