Dear South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust,
Public Interest Disclosure.
Re: Patricia Towner. YMCA. Eva House. Croydon.
Please could you explain why South London and Maudsley NHS
Foundation Trust have refused to answer complaints regarding
alleged abuse, negligence and neglect since August 2012?
The Trust is supporting the eviction of a vulnerably ill adult from
a bed they pay for to save money and put her inappropriately in a
nursing home against her will. What can NHS England do to get the
Trust to answer the damning and scandalous allegations.
PHSO cannot get involved as SLaM have delayed responding to the
complaints indefinitely and they prefer local resolution but the
Trust refuse any resolution.
