Day 41: A question of trust #107days

Today’s post is from Fiona who has a dude the same age as LB. Fiona raises her concerns for the future and asks how we can trust the NHS;

“I wanted to get involved in this campaign as it touched my heart and soul and my thoughts go out to Sara and family of Connor. This is my 18 year old son, who has global learning difficulties, epilepsy and autism as well as type 1 diabetes. Although we struggle sometimes, and some days are more challenging than others, I cannot comprehend how this tragic end to Connor came about while he was in the care of a unit specialising in care for vunerable adults. I would not leave my son unattended in the bath, privacy is one thing, but abandonment and lack of care is another. This is negligence which they were forced to admit only after an independent investigation.

How are we supposed to trust in the NHS to look after our vulnerable children and adults after this?”

P1000237

This is a huge question which  gets at the  heart of what we’re trying to achieve.

As we don’t have any answers right now, one small way forward may be to record those small ‘drops of brilliance’ that have made a difference.

A collection of brilliant drops may offer  ideas, thoughts or changes to what people do. The otherwise unsaid or invisible stuff.
