Amelia Reynolds and Kim Riley of the BBC report on the tragic and preventable death of Katrina Rolph:
How many more preventable deaths can be allowed to happen?
Why haven’t we got properly-funded mental health services in Norfolk and Suffolk?
Why doesn’t Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust (NSFT) have a competent Board?
What are the sycophantic Governors of NSFT doing?
Why aren’t the voices of patients, carers and front line staff being heard?
Why is the self-appointed £600,000 per year ‘consumer champion for health and social care’, Healthwatch Norfolk, silent?
When are mental health commissioners at the CCGs and NHS England going to behave like purchasers rather than patsies?
With its enormous Comms budget, why didn’t NSFT have the decency to make somebody available for interview to apologise for the ‘care’ provided to Katrina Rolph? What was Andy Goff, Debbie White, Lisa Mungham-Gray or Michael ‘Payrise’ Scott doing that was so much more important?
Enough is enough.
Kim Riley did get one fact wrong though: unexpected deaths have not nearly doubled, they have more than doubled. In just four years.
No more deaths.
