Julie Bailey's quest to 'cure the NHS'

The public inquiry into the failings at Stafford Hospital - one of the biggest scandals in the history of the NHS - will publish its conclusions later.

Previous investigations have already established in harrowing detail the abuse and neglect that contributed to hundreds of deaths from 2005 to 2008.

This inquiry has looked at why regulators and senior NHS managers failed to pick up what was happening.

The fact that the disaster at Stafford Hospital was exposed in the first place is in large part down to a campaign led by one woman.

Julie Bailey, whose mother was treated at the hospital, turned the Stafford cafe she owns into a campaign headquarters.

Dominic Hughes reports.
