We recently posted a news story about the “failure” of Southern Health Foundation Trust (SHFT) to investigate a number of unexpected service user deaths. As stated in our post, the reports appearing in the media were based on a draft obtained by the BBC. The full report, commissioned by NHS England, has now been published. A number of organisations have published responses to the full report including Southern Health Trust. NHS England published a detailed response (link below) to the national recommendations. Locally, Chiltern Clinical Commisioning Group (CCCG), which commissions some services from SHT, gave this response.
You can find links to the full report “Independent review of deaths of people with a Learning Disability or Mental Health problem in contact with Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust – April 2011 to March 2015” below.
