Trust chiefs concerns over regulators

HSJ/Capsticks quizzed 63 chief executives in the second instalment of the quarterly survey of the most powerful people in the acute sector, who were asked how confident they were that care failings like those that occurred at Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust, where death rates were higher than expected, would be detected. Of the respondents, 44% said they were “not confident” or “not at all confident”.
