More porkies than a pig farm!




As we trawl through data, the amount of dishonesty, lies, misinformation and deceit is mind-numbing. It is no exaggeration to say, “There are more porkies than in the average pig farm.”



We have already demonstrated how Southern Health covers up misconduct by delaying disclosure of documents to data subjects, Regulators and Ombudsmen and specifically perverted the course of a GMC inquiry by disclosing grossly incomplete and inaccurate information.

Now we find another Pinocchio engaged in misinformation in respect of the GMC:

LP - CL re GMC Disclosure 2016-04-22 001

This is the same Louisa Felipe that, along with Sue Harriman, having misled a meeting on 4 February 2014 with NHS England, the Department of Health, Southampton CCG, the patient’s Consultant and the patient, admitted a few weeks later that Southern Health had shredded (‘accidentally’) two documents containing key evidence of misconduct by two doctors.

And these were not the only key documents Southern Health withheld from the GMC. In a letter to Dr Diaper on 30 March 2015, the Department of Health identified a limited number of examples of missing and inaccurate data and stressed that Southern Health had not taken all reasonable steps to address the data subject’s concerns.

Louisa refers also to the Local Government Ombudsman: they did not have complete data either.

The GMC’s response speaks for itself:

GMC to GH - 11.04.16 2016-04-21 001

After all, why would the GMC express satisfaction? Cathy Lakin had written to them on 19 September 2013:

“I have prepared a file of related documents and will send these to you in a few days.”

And did not supply the ‘related’ documents.



Of course, Southern Health will claim its porkies are genuine errors. Nevertheless, it represents a shocking lack of diligence, especially when their statements are often self-contradictory.


Just imagine

Just imagine the trauma families suffer, when their loved-ones do not survive. This is just one example from Sara Ryan’s blog:

“Just imagine. Nearly three years after her son ‘LB’ died. After two ‘independent’ reviews by Verita were published. After the police closed their investigation into LB’s death because they couldn’t find any evidence that linked the Sloven senior team to the crap provision at STATT. After a two week inquest…

Just imagine you get sent a previously unseen document, anonymously, via My Life My Choice. A document which shows that Sloven knew that the provision on the Slade House site was crap in August 2012. Nearly three months before they took over the Ridgeway provision.”

Note: Sloven – descriptive name for Southern Health used by others.

And the follow-up letter to CEOs of NHS Improvement, Monitor, NHS England and to the Secretary of State says it all:

Sara Ryan letter

And Southern Health’s alleged comment following its CEO’s meeting with Hampshire Members of Parliament yesterday:

We do not comment on private meetings.

In short, according to Southern Health, why should the public and service users be interested in patient health and safety?
