CQC's damning report: Southern Health 'still not doing enough'

The Care Quality Commission has issued a damning report following an inspection of the way the Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust looks after the people in its care. The CQC says the trust is still not doing enough.

The organisation has come under increased scrutiny over the past few months, following the revelation that there were failings in the way that it reported and investigated hundreds of unexpected deaths, particularly the deaths of people using its mental health and learning disability services.

The trust's Chief Executive, Katrina Percy, has faced increased calls for her to step down.

Defiant governors break ranks with leadership at Southern Health

There's been more trouble at under fire Southern Health Trust, as the rift between senior staff grows wider.

Rebel governors went ahead with a meeting critical of the leadership , despite it being cancelled by the Trust management.

It was originally convened to propose a vote of no confidence in Chief Executive Katrina Percy, but instead a small group of governors took questions from the public.

Just three of the 18 governors attended, after the interim chairman Tim Smith called for the meeting to be delayed. Mr Smith said it was because any decision could be open to legal challenge.

The Trust - which covers Hampshire and Dorset - has been criticised for failing to properly investigate the unexpected deaths of around 1,000 people since 2011.
