DAUK in Medscape: Demanding coroner’s inquests for every NHS workers’ death

A letter to Boris Johnson demanding coroner’s inquests for every NHS workers’ death has been signed by more than 100,000 people. The campaign is coordinated by Doctors’ Association UK.

“It is vitally important these challenges are seen as an opportunity to learn. We need to ensure no healthcare worker is put in harm’s way in this manner again and the families get answers.”

Among the recently announced NHS deaths was learning disabilities nurse Augustine Agyei-Mensah from Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. Chief Executive Angela Hillery paid tribute: “Augustine epitomised what we stand for here at NHFT. He was committed to making a difference and giving people a second chance.

“Augustine cared for some of the most vulnerable in our society; lives have been transformed because of him.”
