Dear Sir/Madam

Re.Request under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Thank you for your email received into our Trust 27th May 2010 requesting
information regarding patient deaths to which I would confirm the
following.

Over the requested period of time there were 40 deaths. This broke down to
33 from natural causes, 23 of which were patients who died on Oxleas
wards.

There were 2 suicides in inpatient services and 2 in the community.

There were 2 patient safety deaths 1 recorded as choking and the other as
accidental death.

There is 1 outstanding inquest of a death within inpatient services.
