Abstract

In October 1998 the Bristol Royal Infirmary (BRI) Inquiry was set up to inquire into the care of children receiving complex cardiac services at the BRI between 1984 and 1995, and relevant related issues. We were asked to make findings as to the adequacy of the services provided; to establish what action was taken both within and outside the hospital to deal with the concerns raised about the surgery and to identify any failure to take action promptly; to reach conclusions about these events; and finally to make recommendations that could help secure high quality care across the National Health Service (NHS).

Keywords: child law, family law, organ retention, paediatric cardiac surgery, NHS
