Stafford Hospital gave 'no cause for concern'


The head of the NHS has told an inquiry that Stafford Hospital gave senior health managers no cause for concern.

Sir David Nicholson said that at the time he was more concerned about problems at other hospitals.

Outside the building where the inquiry is being held, campaigners heckled Sir David as he arrived, with some calling for his resignation.

The public inquiry is examining the role of regulatory bodies after a Healthcare Commission report found "appalling care" was provided at the hospital between 2005 and 2008.
