The Chief Executive of the NHS in England, who is facing calls to quit for his role in the Mid-Staffordshire hospitals scandal, says he has no intention of resigning. Sir David Nicholson was previously in charge of the organisation which oversees Mid-Staffs hospitals, where hundreds of patients died unnecessarily. Shelagh speaks to one of a number of MP's who are calling on him to resign.

Also over ten thousand children were admitted to hospital for malnutrition last year. In an extended report Shelagh looks into why some children aren't getting enough to eat. She also hears from a dietician who thinks we're facing a growing trend of children who are obese - but undernourished.
