  4. Mental health trust's apology after woman's death

    Sabrina Walsh

    A mental health trust has apologised after a patient died at a unit in Sussex.

    Sabrina Walsh, 32, died in October 2016 after being admitted to the Woodlands Centre in St Leonards.

    An inquest heard that a nurse had recommended that Miss Walsh be moved to a secure intensive unit in Crawley, instead of the Woodlands Centre, because of her behaviour.

    The Woodlands Centre is run by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

    An inquest into her death in Hastings concluded today.

    Quote Message: I want to offer my sincere condolences on behalf of the Trust to the family of Ms Walsh. I do not underestimate how difficult and painful this inquest has been for her family and friends. Ms Walsh was a vulnerable young woman under our care and she died in tragic circumstances and for that I am sorry.
    Quote Message: We will reflect on the points the coroner has made today and respond to the concerns he has raised. We have already made changes following our own internal investigation, which include additional training for staff, improving communication among our different teams, better management of risk assessments and admissions procedures for patients and, crucially, replacing bathroom doors to ones where there are no ligature points.
    Quote Message: That said, Ms Walsh should not have died in these circumstances. We are committed to ensuring that we learn from this sad incident and have taken steps to ensure that nothing like this can happen again.” from Diane Hull Chief Nurse, Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
