The case of Hannah Groves, and her mother, Mandy Park, has featured extensively previously on our website news reports:-
26.07.13 – Mental Health Worker called patient ‘a waste of space’.
15.09.13 – Sunday Times:- Suicide girl branded ‘waste of space’ by MHS.
05.09.13 – Mental Health Services slammed after Hannah Groves took her own life.
11.11.15 – Hannah Groves – High Court enters judgement for wholesale failings by Southern Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust having caused Hannah’s death.
Earlier this week the BBC received a draft report, commissioned by NHS England, which found that Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust failed to investigate unexpected deaths of more than 1,000 patients, over 4 years.
The Government, through Health Minister, Jeremy Hunt, has expressed its “profound shock” at the report and announced wide scale changes including introducing ‘Ofsted style’ ratings in this area and publishing the number of avoidable deaths per NHS Trust from next year.
These apparent failings, on the part of the Trust, has reignited interest in Hannah’s case with mum, Mandy, appearing on BBC national news last evening as well within an extensive piece by ITV Meridian (which also featured Nick Fairweather who represents Mandy).
Mandy’s case continues in the High Court.
