22 July 2020 — The Lowdown
Some good news: the NHS has successfully lifted its hospital occupancy to pre-COVID levels despite the current challenges, according to figures revealed by the Lowdown.
This week too Sarah Jane Downing writes in the Lowdown about her personal campaign to improve the safety of hospitals and we analyse what steps should be taken after several damning inquiries into hospital failures.
