There has been a great deal of media interest in the tragic case of Peter Franklin who took his own life in August 2013 having failed to access help from the local Mental Health Trust and at Maidstone Hospital A&E Department numerous times on the day of his death.
Following the Inquest into Peter’s death the Coroner issued a Prevention of Future Deaths Report and the Psychiatric Nurse working for the crisis team on the day was found guilty of professional misconduct by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Claims against both Trusts were settled, pre-issue, on behalf of Peter’s Widow, Lynne.
The case has since featured in both the Sunday Times and the Sunday People.
