Dad says hospital where daughter died should have been closed sooner

1 1 5

The father of one of three patients with learning disabilities who died at a Norfolk private hospital has said it should have been shut down sooner.

Joanna Bailey, 36, died at Cawston Park hospital, near Aylsham, Norfolk, in April 2018 after a seizure.

She was the first of three patients who died at the hospital, triggering a scathing serious case review commissioned by Norfolk Safeguarding Adults Board.

Ms Bailey, 36, Nicholas Briant, 33, and Ben King, 32, died within just over two years of each other while they were patients at the hospital, which has since closed down.

Ms Bailey, from Romford, had been sectioned there since 2016. She had learning disabilities and health conditions, including epilepsy and sleep apnoea.
