Dalton health campaigner to stage protest outside health watchdog HQ
Last updated at 09:49, Thursday, 26 June 2014
A HEALTH campaigner from Dalton has announced he will stage a protest outside a health watchdog’s headquarters.
James Titcombe, from Dalton, has announced he will stage a peaceful protest outside Millbank Tower, in London, the headquarters of the Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman.
Mr Titcombe made the announcement on Twitter today.
He said: “I will be holding a peaceful protest outside Millbank Tower within the next 2 weeks to highlight our treatment by @PHSOmbudsman”
A report was published in April by parliament’s public administration committee calling for reform in the way the parliamentary and health service ombudsman service is run.
The report highlighted the potential impact of the service not investigating a complaint by referencing the crisis at Furness General Hospital, following the death of baby Joshua Titcombe in November 2008.
His father James Titcombe, now national patient safety advisor with the CQC, made three complaints to the PHSO in 2010. The service changed its mind on the issue following evidence from an inquest.
