Walked into Oxford earlier with Rich. One of those days when there were no end of brilliant photos to take. Including a cheeky bee.
- initially said LB died of natural causes and all due process was followed.
- tried to stop the publication of the first Verita investigation which found LB’s death was preventable.
- spent nearly £300,000 on legal expenses at LB’s inquest to try to avoid accountability.
- spent nearly £50,000 to try to sink the Mazars review into their death reporting.
- have been found to be failing by numerous coroners over the past five years
- etc, etc, etc…
‘Seriously derogatory remarks’…. Not sure where, in the guvs’ code of practice, it states ‘thou shalt not say owt negative against the hallowed trust’. What a load of bullying bullshite. Those of you following this deeply harrowing tale of a trust gone bad will know that an extraordinary meeting to discuss a vote of no confidence in the Sloven leadership was stopped on May 17 by interim chair, Tim Smart. He got the Capstick heavies involved. The discussion remains to be had. Now this.
Truly, truly extraordinary.
Extraordinary timescales too. An ‘investigation’ into the actions of a governor with such priority it can be sorted in a month. We’re into the fourth year of investigations into LB’s death. GMC, NMC, HSE.. Every one of them drawn out because of Sloven slovenliness. Delay and obfuscation.
LB died. He died. Without any accountability. But the investigation into the actions of a governor is racing on. Interviews, evidence collecting and all. By an organisation who failed to investigate 100s of unexpected deaths in their care. I almost think I’ll wake up in a mo. Surely this can’t be happening in full view of NHS Improvement, NHS England, the CQC and Jeremy Hunt?
In a final piece of [no words left] the Sloven annual report has been signed off.
My incredulity monitor has finally broken.
