A culture of candour? #JusticeforLB
I’ve spent about an hour trying to write a blog post but keep deleting the words. Today Sara shared the audio message below which she picked up from her work answerphone.
Good morning, hello, hi, this is a message for Dr Sara Ryan, um I’ve been seeing on the media about your son, your poor son who died in the care of Southern Health. I work for Southern Health and I feel awful that you lost him, I’m so sorry that you have done, it’s tragic, and, I hope you find some closure after the report, the issue of the GM… urgh CQC report today, but I do think you are being very vindictive. I think you are a vindictive cow.
On TV all the time, ummm, slating the NHS Southern Health. With your intelligent background, you know, as much as much as anyone else knows, that Southern Health only took over those units in Oxfordshire recent, you know the recent months before your son died.
You know, with your background, it takes a while to make changes in anywhere, and I think now you’ve just become a [inaudible] and you want some attention, but you are vindictive and you are unpleasant, and you are a nasty cow.

Thanks to Lucia for the transcript
Have a listen and just ask yourself what sort of culture allows such attitudes to prevail.
What messages have been shared at Southern Health that gives their staff members the belief that laying blame at the feet of bereaved relatives is appropriate, never mind accurate.
Our hunch in the Justice Shed is that KP and her sunshine band have been busily briefing staff, dismissing and defaming the CQC report, as they did the Mazars report, and every previous report before that.
We debated whether to share this message but everything about JusticeforLB has been built on a foundation of openness, transparency and honesty – so here it is. It has also been passed to the Police.
