PM's call for chief inspector of hospitals on UK wards is welcomed by health trust chief executive for northern Lincolnshire
The chief executive of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust has welcomed PM David Cameron's call to put a new chief inspector of hospitals onto wards.
The PM is expected to create the role today, in reaction to a devastating report into shock failings at Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust.
The new inspector will have powers to check hospitals and reprimand failing doctors in a bid to bring back "humanity" as a key principle.
Karen Jackson, chief executive of Northern Lincolnshire and Goole NHS Foundation Trust, said: "Anything that supports the National Health Service in delivering quality services for patients is welcome.

"Inspections help us learn and assure us of the quality of our services. We currently receive inspections from the Care Quality Commission and it has reported that our quality of care is good. We would of course always take action if we received any recommendations around our services.
"Regulation is only one part of ensuring we provide good services and alone it will not secure high quality of care for all. It is also vital that we continue to focus on the patient experience, as feedback from the people who come through our doors helps us improve the quality of our services."
