HSJ has reported that Sir David Nicholson could face a private criminal prosecution for corporate manslaughter over deaths at the Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust.

The journal said that the NHS chief executive has been named in an application sent to Camberwell Green Magistrates’ Court by retired investment banker Alan Edwards, 38, from Greenwich, London. He has applied to the court to seek permission to bring a prosecution against Sir David on four counts: corporate manslaughter; misconduct in public office; perverting the course of justice and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
