  2. George Hollingbery: 'Katrina Percy made right decision'

    George Hollingbery MP
    Quote Message: I think Ms Percy has made the right decision to stand down. The recent review by the chairman of Southern Health cleared her of any fault, but it was clear the families of those who have been affected by poor care from the trust were very unhappy she was staying, and I hope this now allows them to look forward to a resolution of their grievances. I also hope it will add further impetus to Southern in its endeavours to get itself back on a proper footing. I now urge the quickest possible recruitment process so that someone can be appointed to take the trust forward and to ensure the mistakes of the past are not repeated. from George Hollingbery Conservative MP for Meon Valley

  10. Campaigner welcomes Katrina Percy resignation

    A prominent critic of health boss Katrina Percy has welcomed her "long overdue" resignation as chief executive of Southern Health NHS trust.

    Dr Sara Ryan has campaigned for changes at Southern Health since her son, Connor Sparrowhawk, drowned in a bath in 2013.

    In a statement, she said: "This whole sorry episode has shone an important light on peculiar workings at senior NHS levels around regulation, accountability and enforcement.

    "It also demonstrates that candour and transparency remain woefully lacking in 2016."
