GMC response to the Gosport Independent Panel report

Charlie Massey, Chief Executive of the General Medical Council, said:

‘Our thoughts are with the families of those who lost their loved ones, following simply unacceptable treatment at Gosport War Memorial Hospital. Patients and their families were clearly let down by the system, and that is not good enough. This has been an extremely difficult and protracted process for each family involved. 

‘We welcome the work that Bishop James Jones and his panel carried out to oversee the maximum possible disclosure of information around the care of patients at the hospital over two decades.

‘We will be studying the report carefully to identify learning points.  We are committed to taking any further action necessary in light of information revealed by this report.’
