Publication of independent homicide review by NHS England

20 December 2016

Today NHS England has published an independent homicide review into the care and treatment of a mental health service user (JK) in Southampton.

The independent investigation was commissioned to review the care and treatment provided to JK by Southern Health up to the time of the homicide in June 2014.

The independent homicide review report identifies a number of areas for improvement in the care we provided and these largely mirror the findings of the Trust’s own investigation in 2015. Since 2014 we have implemented a number of significant changes and improvements to our mental health services in Southampton and are in the process of putting in place the additional recommendations highlighted in this report. Below is a copy of the Trust’s action plan in response to the report.
