PMQs: Cameron urged to sack NHS boss David Nicholson

Help

Labour's Graham Stringer called on the prime minister to immediately sack NHS chief executive Sir David Nicholson for "wilful and culpable ignorance" over 1,000 deaths at Stafford Hospital.

But David Cameron said the boss of the health services in England had "very frankly and very candidly apologised", and added that "other people frankly should be thinking of their positions too".

Sir David was head of the regional health authority for 10 months that oversaw the hospital.
