Even reviews show you the system is rotten
24 December 2019 | by a-shoesmith-677-488076See all my reviews

I've never written a review before. Having just watched The Cure, it is an outstanding film and everyone associated with it should take huge credit.

The core reason for my post is that at the time of writing three of the five reviews for The Cure are 1/10 that claim exaggeration, untruths and "it wasn't really that bad". It is precisely this type of blasé attitude and a culture of cover up and unwillingness to listen and learn that caused the problems at Mid Staffs in the first place.

God bless Julie Bailey.
