Superb piece about LB in Guardian Weekend on Saturday. Written by Simon Hattenstone with pics by Joel Redding. They got on and did a cracking job. No fuss or prevarication. Sensitive, comprehensive and thoughtful. Not an easy gig. More light in contrast to the stench we continue to experience from the variously implicated organisations.
So what are we waiting for? In no particular order, as always:
General Medical Council investigation into consultant [679 days]
Care Quality Commission Fit and Proper Person’s Requirement (FPPR) into the Sloven CEO’s fitness to practice [92 days]
Nursing and Midwifery Council investigation into nursing staff [58 days]
A reply to my letter to the Sloven governors [94 days]
Health and Safety Executive investigation [392 days]
Any meaningful action from NHS Improvement (previously Monitor) [109 days]
An apology from Oxfordshire County Council for their sordid and secret review [356 days]
There can be no excuse whatsoever for this level of delay.
This complete fucktivity.
But hey ho. Here’s a pic of the kids that didn’t make the mag to keep the light shining.
