People want to have confidence that the care they need now, or will need in the future, can support a diversity of needs and aspirations. This means we need to consider the needs of all people, especially those who might traditionally be excluded or who find it difficult to access services and support. Hard Truths: The Journey to Putting Patients First sets out the health system’s full response to the Francis Inquiry into patient abuse and neglect at Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust, including a response to each of the 290 recommendations. This document sets out an assessment of the impact that the measures outlined in the response are expected to have on vulnerable people and the opportunities that are offered to advance both equality of access and equality of opportunity.
