After 20 years fighting for justice for our loved ones, the Gosport War Memorial Hospital Inquiry Panel have laid out the facts.
The Families are still waiting for a response from the Attorney General with regards to criminal proceedings and the commencement of a Police Investigation.
Thank you for understanding the enormous challenge it has taken to get the truth into the public domain and if you are able to support our crowd funding to ensure we have crucial legal advice not afforded to the victims.
The Panel reveal that, as demonstrated in Table 1 at the end of the Report, during a certain period at Gosport War Memorial Hospital, there was a disregard for human life and a culture of shortening the lives of a large number of patients by prescribing and administering “dangerous doses” of a hazardous combination of medication not clinically indicated or justified. They show too that, whereas a large number of patients and their relatives understood that their admission to the hospital was for either rehabilitation or respite care, they were, in effect, put on a terminal care pathway. They show that, when relatives complained about the safety of patients and the appropriateness of their care, they were consistently let down by those in authority – both individuals and institutions. These included the senior management of the hospital, healthcare organisations, Hampshire Constabulary, local politicians, the coronial system, the Crown Prosecution Service, the General Medical Council and the Nursing and Midwifery Council. All failed to act in ways that would have better protected patients and relatives, whose interests some subordinated to the reputation of the hospital and the professions involved.
Justice must prevail and those that disregarded the lives of these some 656 vulnerable patients be made accountable.
