Hello I'm Sally Taylor. so it's goodbye from me,
Tonight in South Today - two tragic stories which at their
heart have mental health trtsts failing
Southern Health is accused of failing a mother
who killed herself after thd death of her son who had
Upset and angry. Because it makes you got over it 100 times again and
again, thinking what could H have done differently?
And in Sussex, Susan Goswell's death was predictable, says a report.
Her husband killed her after making threats for ye`rs.
If they predicted it, they could have prevented it. I think ly
mother's life, there was no question that was the case. We go back on a
journey through 150 million years in a new museum dedicated to one man's
passion for marine fossils. I'm sharing it with everyone in the nice
thing is they don't live so I'm hopefully safeguarding it for the
future as well. "She couldn't continue
with her life after The words of a coroner todax
in the inquest of Karin Cheshire, a Southampton mother who colmitted
suicide nearly a year to the day after her only son
also took his own life. Jay Cheshire was 17
when he was investigated An allegation that
never made it to court. For Karin Cheshire, the pain
of losing a child was something A mother of two, who'd grown
to become the closest She was the best mum,
so loving, the three of us In July this year, at the Cheshire's
family home in Bitterne, The inquest heard today how Karin
had suffered a "mental breakdown" following the death of her son
and had been in and out of psychiatric units run
by the Southern Health Trust on five occasions over
a period of six months. The Trust was criticised
by the coroner for failing to pick up suicidal tendencies just three
days before hanging herself. It was the second tragic ch`pter
in the saddest of stories. Almost a year before
Karin took her own life, her son Jay had committed sticide
here in Riverside Park. At the age of just 17, Jay,
who had a history of depression had been the subject of a police
investigation into an allegdd rape. An investigation that was dropped
due to a lack of evidence, and after police say the alleged
victim decided against Jay's own inquest heard it had
a "profound effect on his My mum and my brother used the same
probe. My mum after receiving that back from the police, actually used
the same rope. That is something that is good to stick with le for
the rest of my life. I have very little family, and I'm just so
angry. It is the law that alleged victims
of sexual assault should maintain anonymity -
whether the investigation ends up in court or not, unless thex choose
to waive their right. My brother is gone and my mtm is
gone, that is to lives lost, because of a certain situation.
Jay, who was described in court as a "sensitive young man" had left
personal notes and had also written his own
Today the coroner said that Karin was a "special person"
It wasn't that she loves me any more or less, I know that, it was that
she couldn't live with what had happened to my brother, she couldn't
live without one of her children. The Southern Health Trust apologised
to her remaining family for their failure to recognhse

murdered his mother. Roger Goswell, who had
mental health problems, stabbed his wife Susan at their home
in West Chiltington in 2007 A review into TEN killings hnvolving
patients in the care of the Sussex Partnership NHS
Foundation Trust revealed that Joe Goswell says he's stunndd
by the report's findings which also found that
risks posed by patients werd not Information from family and carers
was not used effectively. And some of the Trust's staff
did not understand the extent of their powers under
the Mental Health Act. We'll be exploring the issuds it
raises in just a moment. Nine years ago, Roger Goswell used
a kitchen knife and a mallet to kill his wife Susan at their home
in West Chiltington - He'd been receiving mental health
treatment for a number of ydars - but hadn't been sectioned,
despite his wife telling If they predicted it, then they
could have prevented it. I think my mother 's love, no question that was
the case, could have saved ht they have a duty of care, and as a duty
of care, they should have m`de sure they prevented my mother 's death.
Today's report examined the Goswell case -
and nine others involving p`tients under the care of Sussex Partnership
The trust launched the revidw after Matthew Daley killed
Donald Lock on the A24 in Findon last year.
The 79-year-old great-grandfather, was stabbed 39 times by Daldy
I think he felt the floor and then it was just like autopilot.
Daley was convicted of manslaughter on the grounds of diminished

My message to the families hs one, Kim, of apology and condolence but
an assurance that we will ldarn the lessons information to thesd tragic
events. -- in relation. The trust has promised families -
like the Goswells - that in the future
they will be listened to and more involved in the care
of their relatives. Marjorie Wallace is from
the Mental Health charity [email protected] First of all, the Sussex mental
health trust, they have apologised, put their hands up to it, they have
said lessons will be learned but is that enough? No it isn't. This is an
indictment of the failure to protect the lives of both patients, the
families and the public. We have heard some of the failings,
including not enough adequate risk assessments, poor staff trahning,
they seem to be fundamental. How soon should we be and how concerned
are you? Very concerned. We have listened to these enquiries and gone
to over 100 of them, and thd same failings are reported. It doesn t
take huge resources to listdn to the families can stop if they lhsten to
the father of Matthew Daly, for ten years he had been telling them that
his son suffered from schizophrenia, hearing voices, and that he can be
violent. And they refused to take it warning seriously. It's the same
time and again. When we did an enquiry at SANE, we did a whole
analysis, etc one in two of the patient homicide cases had been
identified as a failure to listen to families and people close to that
patient. Patients need confhdence in mental health trusts, the ptblic
need confidence as well. Is there just too much reliance on c`re in
the community, in other words potential dangerous patients are
allowed out? I think the problem is that with the community card policy,
people, however disturbed, `re living in the community, but instead
of being under strict supervision, they are under community te`ms and
there been a lot of criticism of these teams, they have been cuts
made, they are overstretched, they often don't turn up. There hs not
one consistent person, which everybody wants and needs, who knows
the history, and again and `gain they failed to include the families.
Great to talk to you, thank you for speaking to us.

have a derelict building in Farnham, we want to regenerate its and we
want people to come here and enjoy it, and Brightwells is the way
forward. Opponents say they are the stamping block. The only thhng that
is standing in the way is that our council, Waverley, cannot obtain
commercial funding and 14 ydars it has failed to do so. One of the
reasons it has failed to do so is that shopping is changing, `nd there
is a lot of shopping in this development, a lot of retail. Clicks

Bournemouth and Poole's Dightal economy has been run over stccess

challenge. There is a big shortage of talent out there, the cldarly in

of the key challenges is to maintain that. The that 1000 14 to 18 year
