Will Powell is campaigning with others for a Duty of Candour (Robbie's Law) in the hope that it would reduce medical errors and associated cover-ups

Among the online Comments beneath the Telegraph article about Lord Crisp's disgraceful attempts to cover up NHS hospital maternity deaths, is one by Will Powell, who tragically lost his 10-year-old son, Robbie, to gross medical negligence in 1990. Since his loss Will, whom I met some years ago at a SIN (Sufferers of Iatrogenic Neglect) conference, has been campaigning against lying by healthcare professionals, and against the cover-ups that permit them to treat patients negligently with complete impunity.

I hope you will read what Will Powell has written and be shocked by this extract: "As the law stands now, however, doctors have no duty to give parents of a child who died as a result of their negligence a truthful account of the circumstances of the death, nor even to refrain from deliberately falsifying records."

If you have not yet signed the petition for Robbie’s Law, you can access it here.
