#JusticeforLB statement on Katrina Percy’s resignation
Today Southern Health announced Katrina Percy has resigned her post as CEO. Here is our response:
Katrina Percy’s resignation is long overdue and directly relates to the failings identified by repeated CQC inspections and the Mazars independent review of (non) investigations into deaths in mental health and learning disability services at Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust.
This whole sorry episode has shone an important light on peculiar workings at senior NHS levels around regulation, accountability and enforcement. It also demonstrates that candour and transparency remain woefully lacking in 2016.
We wish Julie Dawes the very best in her interim role as CEO and hope that a new executive team can make necessary changes to enable staff across the organisation to provide excellent, patient centred care and support.
