Priory Healthcare fined following death of 14-year-old girl

The healthcare provider has been fined £300,000 & £65,801.38 costs for its  failings following the death of a 14-year-old girl.

November 2012, she was found with a ligature around her neck in her room.
She was taken to hospital but had suffered irreparable brain damage &  failure of multiple organs, so a decision was taken to withdraw life support.
She was sadly pronounced dead the following day.

An investigation by the HSE, following the coroner’s inquest, found Priory Healthcare Ltd had failed to identify or put in place control measures that would have better managed ligature risks.
