The MP for Fareham, Suella Fernandes, has been following events at the Southern Health Trust on behalf of her constituents in Hampshire.
The politician raised her concerns about the organisation in the House of Commons earlier this year. ITV Meridian presenter Sangeeta Bhabra asked the MP about her reaction to the resignation of Southern Health's Chief Executive Katrina Percy.
ITV Meridian's Andrew Pate takes a look at the events that led up to the resignation of Katrina's Percy, the former Chief Executive of the Southern Health NHS Trust.
Take a look at our report on the reaction to the resignation from people including the mother of Connor Sparrowhawk, a young man who died while under the care of the Southern Health NHS Trust in Oxfordshire. The organisation was criticised for the way it dealt with the unexpected deaths of hundreds of vulnerable people in its care.
The Chief Executive of the Southern Health NHS Trust has given in to pressure and resigned from her post.
Katrina Percy was criticised for her lack of leadership at the trust which failed to properly investigate the unexpected deaths of hundreds of vulnerable patients in its care.
It has taken more than a year of repeated calls for her to go - from MPs, to charities and Southern Health governors themselves. But she will not leave empty-handed, she'll move to another role in the same health trust, and keep her salary of more than £180,000.
Today, the mother of Connor Sparrowhawk - a young man from Oxfordshire who died whilst in Southern Health's care - gave her reaction. Kate Bunkall has our report.
The boss of Southern Health NHS, Katrina Percy, has announced she will step down this morning.
In a statement released by the Trust, she confirmed her resignation following a review into the organisation.
ITV Meridian spent the day trying to talk to the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust's Chief Executive, Katrina Percy, about the CQC's damning report into some of its care of people under its protection.
No interview was granted, but Katrina Percy did issue a statement about the health watchdog's findings. ITV Meridian presenters Fred Dinenage and Stacey Poole spoke to reporter Richard Slee.
The Chief Executive of the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, Katrina Percy, issued the following statement in response to a critical report from the Care Quality Commission after an inspection of her organisation's services and care provision.
“Today's CQC report sends a clear message to the leadership of the Trust that more improvements must be delivered and as rapidly as possible. I want to reassure our patients, their families and carers that I am absolutely focused on addressing the CQC's concerns and supporting our staff to provide the best care possible.
As well as rightly highlighting areas of concern, I am pleased that the CQC recognises our staff's caring attitude to patients and the progress made in a number of units, including one of our community mental health teams our mental health inpatient units and our Child and Adolescent Mental Health services. This progress reflects the unwavering dedication of our staff, and my job is to make sure these improvements are now carried through consistently across all our services.
We fully accept that until we address all these concerns and our new reporting and investigating procedures introduced in December 2015 are completely effective, we will remain, rightly, under intense scrutiny. We will continue to share regular updates on progress publicly to demonstrate improvement and help re-build trust in our services.”
