A short post. I read this extract from the latest Sloven board minute papers last night and had one of those moments when I couldn’t see the screen for tears. James should not have died. Mike Holder wrote to Katrina Percy in 2012 detailing the safety concerns he had. These concerns were ignored. The CEO and board didn’t care.
Mrs Younghusband should not have to go to a NHS Trust board meeting to say the unspeakable.
There is a clear and incontrovertible link here between corporate decision making and James’ death. And the slimy Sloven bastards tried to stop Mrs Y from taking civil action by limiting the time she has to act.
The lack of action by those who should be acting (Monitor, Department of Health, NHS England, CQC, yawn-di ya-di da) makes me wonder when most of the principles guiding the NHS were ditched? Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust is no part of a National Health Service I recognise or believe(d) in.
