Suspicious deaths of the elderly in hospital: An appeal for people to contact me
For the past four years I have been a member of the Gosport War Memorial Hospital Independent Panel that concluded that at least 456 elderly people had their lives shortened as " a direct result of the pattern of prescribing and administering opioids that had become the norm at the hospital."
Since publication of the report the events at Gosport are now the subject of an independent police inquiry so I cannot take up any cases involving Gosport.
However since the report's publication a number of people have contacted me on my website with allegations of a similar nature in other parts of the country,
As a result I have started investigations into these and would welcome other people - relatives of former patients, NHS staff or lawyers representing them- to contact me in confidence as I am actively looking at this issue.
The aim will be to publicise and investigate these fresh allegations to find out what happened to their relatives and seek explanations from the various hospitals who were responsible for their treatment.
You can get in touch with me by clicking on the contact me heading on my website or through byline.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
