One thought on “Almost 400 Coroners’ special warning reports on MH deaths

  1. Parity of esteem is yet another euphemism for doing nothing, but suggesting to the public that the NHS cares about Mental Health patients. In the CCG I worked for, before raising concerns which were followed by bullying, harassment, discrimination, victimisation, suspension and dismissal they firstly didn’t feel the need to appoint a MH commissioner, then when they did problems arose which resulted in the MH leads a clinician and a non-clinician being placed on garden leave / suggested dismissals, without immediate replacement, no stability, a myriad of temporary staff or none, so 4 years into life of CCG no one has yet developed a MH Strategy to fully work with providers to review contracts and provision. Only now is there a suggestion that the CCG plan to address inadequacies in the system. Although looking at other assurances on CCG website patients may have a long wait ahead.
