Coroner Catharine Palmer said Miss McKay’s death was unascertained and called the community mental health team’s work “suboptimal”.Hmmm....
That seems to be rather mild criticism, given the circumstances.
Miss McKay was found dead in a chair in her living room by police on January 11. Brighton Coroner’s Court was told she died in the first week of 2018 – though an exact date could not be ascertained.
David Manser, one of the nurses who visited Miss McKay, was asked if her behaviour on December 19 was a cause for concern, but he stood by his actions.
Claire Williams, the community mental health team’s service manager, said her team “should have done more”.So, you'll be sacking them? No. Of course not.
