Health committee chair's statement on NSFT story

Norfolk County Council, 29 August 2023 00:00

Councillor Fran Whymark, chair of the health overview and scrutiny committee, said: "I am very concerned to learn about the issues raised in the BBC reporting on NSFT today. Following these tragic deaths, we all need to have full confidence that NSFT will be open about the lessons learnt and that it will take the right action. My committee will be looking into the issues, when it meets on 14 September. 

"At the committee meeting, I expect to hear from the chief executive about what has been done and what will be done, to address the culture which has allowed this to happen.

"This is an opportunity for NSFT to be open and honest about the long term failings which have had such a devastating impact on residents in Norfolk and Suffolk.

"The learning from the report will be worthless if there is no institutional change, from board level down."
