BBC News reports on some of the individual personal accounts of suffering and neglect brought to public attention earlier this week by the Patients Association.
Details of these individual case studies are indicative of the appalling standards of healthcare offered to too many unfortunate sick people in NHS hospitals.

Some further individual accounts, reported in the Telegraph:
And here is a young doctor's concerned account of a personal recollection of lack of care and compassion on NHS wards: Dr Max Pemberton writing in the Telegraph.
The government has responded with Statistics not Care.
