Labour tried to silence watchdog over failing hospitals just before general elections

 Labour tried to silence watchdog over failing hospitals just before general electionsIn a frantic move just before the general election the Labour tried to stop a negative report from getting published highlighting the disgraceful hospital neglect.

Labour party ministers instructed the Care Quality Commission not to publish its verdict on Basildon and Thurrock hospital in Essex where there have been several cases of death due to bad care for patients.

Investigators discovered blood stains in the hospital premises on curtains and furniture along with equipment like catheters lying on the floor at the lead establishment healing facility.

The rate of fatalities in A&e were a third above normal. Anyhow, just some time before the CQC was supposed to release the report in November 2009, the Department of Health advised the watchdog to stop.

Recently discharged messages show that the then Health Secretary Andy Burnham was irate when the report was later made open betwixt gigantic media scope.

They additionally demonstrate authorities were asked to turn an important NHS report once more in the run-up to the 2010 decision.

The disclosure pressurizes Mr Burnham in an impending reshuffle. He is feared to lose his occupation as Labour health representative
