Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

If I was Tom Kark, I’d be pretty frustrated at reading the headlines today. Having been given an impossibly short time-frame to come up with an answer to the age-old question, he has made a best fist of it.  To have only two of his seven recommendations accepted by the DHSC and the issue further kicked down the road is nothing short of insulting.

The review is not without its issues and misses some key issues and opportunities.

Please login to the Members Area of the IHM website to read my views  and the recommendations I would have liked to have seen in this review.

In answer to the age-old question – who guards the guards?  I find myself asking are the guards directors,the CQC, the DHSC or the Government themselves?
