The Health Minister, Mr Stephen Hammond has launched an independent inquiry into the past medical failures of Liverpool Community Health Trust.

Liverpool Community Health ran for eight years from 200 to 2018 and provided services such as district nursing, child and adolescent care, dentistry and diabetes care for residents of Merseyside.

The inquiry on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care has been launched following concerns that around 150 deaths were not investigated properly, but it will also investigate approximately 17,000 cases relating to patient safety. The inquiry will focus on serious incidents and potential and potential substandard care occurring at the Trust between 2010 and 2014.

The review will consider and determine the scale of patient harm and then make recommendations nationally to NHS Trusts. The inquiry’s findings will be published at the end of 2020.

If you feel you or a loved one has been affected by medical failures or substandard care, you can contact Graystons for further assistance. We can also advise you on the range of funding options available to you, including whether you may be able to fund any legal action under a “no win, no fee agreement”.
