NHS chief Sir David Nicholson has been called to resign from the post of chief executive of NHS, by ten Tory MPs for his alleged involvement in a scandal and supervising a `culture of secrecy and cover up that cost many people, thereby leading to the death of 1,200 patients in Stafford Hospital. The claimant MPs are of the view that when the death rate was high in the hospital, Sir David was head of Regional Health Authority and was overseeing the hospital at that time.
This campaign got a spark from the finding of The Francis Report, which found the cases of abuse and neglect resulting in unnecessary deaths between 2005 and 2008. The report revealed the dreadful situation of neglect that had reached to such an extent that patients died in their own urine and faeces and had to drink water from the nearby flowerpots.
MPs Charlotte Leslie, Andrew Bridgen, Nick de Bois, Mark Field, Kate Hoey and Nicholas Soames have signed the motion and other four MP's expressed their support in the mail regarding the demand of resignation. But backing Sir David, Prime Minister David Cameron said that Sir David has apologized and learned lessons as well and want NHS to learn them now.
