Professor Sir Brian Jarman, Director of the Dr Foster Unit, recently appeared on Radio 4 and a Channel 4 News piece regarding the Mid Staffordshire Public Inquiry, discussing his involvement as an expert witness. A mortality alert system developed within the Dr Foster Unit by Professor Jarman, Dr Paul Aylin and Dr Alex Bottle detected high mortality rates at the hospital. The hospital received written notice of their high mortality rates, but in their evidence to the inquiry, claimed they were unaware of this information. Professor Jarman discussed the results of the inquiry on 20 February 2013 as part of the PCPH Seminar Series. The Daily Telegraph also covered Professor Jarman’s role in the public inquiry.
