'More must be done' NHS trust's failings revealed after review of killings involving mental health patients

The ten people whose cases were examined for an independent review

A damning independent review has criticised the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust - and revealed that there were severe failings in the cases of ten people.

The review was launched after the conviction of Matthew Daley - who killed pensioner Donald Lock. He had stabbed him 39 times after a minor collision between their cars, near Worthing.

The interviewees in Malcolm Shaw's report are Joseph Goswell, whose father was one of the mental health patients mentioned in the review; and Colm Donaghy, the Chief Executive of the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.
