Mum fears NHS trust cover-up over Cambridgeshire suicides review

The mother of a woman who took her own life weeks after being discharged from a mental health ward fears a "culture of cover up" within the NHS trust.

Hannah Roberts, 22, died by suicide in 2018 and her mother Sally said there were "discrepancies" in the accounts of the talented musician's discharge. She feels an ongoing internal review into all Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT) suicides since 2017 should be independent.

CPFT did not respond to her comments.

The trust's chief executive Anna Hills previously said the internal review into 63 suicides would "be an important piece of work".

Its announcement came after the trust was accused of adding to the records of Charles Ndhlovu, 33, the day after he took his own life to, in his mother's words, "correct their mistakes".
