Southern Health 'had no arrangements to investigate deaths'

A report by the Care Quality Commission has found that Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust had no "robust arrangements" to investigate incidents such as the death of 18-year-old patient Connor Sparrowhawk in 2013.

It emerged that Connor's death was not an isolated case, and his family have battled to find out why he and hundreds of other vulnerable patients died.
