Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee
Report and Government Response published.
In December 2017, the Parliamentary and Health Services Ombudsman (PHSO) published its report Ignoring the alarms: How NHS eating disorder services are failing patients and presented it to Parliament. In ‘Ignoring the alarms’, the PHSO set out three cases that it investigated which illustrated significant failings in eating disorder services and serious issues that required national attention. The Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee (PACAC) is holding an oral evidence session to explore key issues raised in the report and the actions needed to address those issues.
Evidence given by Andrew Radford, Chief Executive, BEAT Eating Disorders, Dr Dasha Nicholls, Chair, Faculty of Eating Disorders, Royal College of Psychiatrists; Professor Lisa Bayliss-Pratt, Chief Nurse, Health Education England, Dr Colin Melville, Director of Education and Standards, General Medical Council; Jackie Doyle-Price MP, Minister for Mental Health, DHSC,
and Professor Tim Kendall, National Clinical Director for Mental Health, NHS England and NHS Improvement
Chair of PACAC has welcomed the inclusion of a Health Service Safety Investigations Bill in the Queen’s Speech, as recommended by the Committee in a recent high-profile report
