After nearly three years of atrocious responses from Sloven to what happened to LB, this document arrived anonymously in the Justice shed earlier. An emergency motion presented at the governors meeting on April 26th. Apparently, from what we can glean from Michael Buchanan’s tweets and other sources, some of the governors were taken aback by the never before seen candour and transparency they were confronted with, without warning.
Petter, then chair, decided that the motion would be held back to an extraordinary meeting to be held within 7-10 days of the CQC report being published. I suppose to allow certain people the space to recover their shock and horror that, for once, their cosy slumbering and collusion with the board was being challenged.
I can’t describe what it feels like to read these words. Such a careful, reflexive, comprehensive and sensible engagement with the catalogue of failings since Mike Holder’s report in 2012.
I’m not sure I’d add anything other than, good on you, Mark Aspinall and the other governors who expressed support for it. What a refreshing contrast to the simply offensive letter we were sent on Thursday. And here’s looking forward to the extraordinary meeting in the next week or so.
