'Failings' found at mental health agency

11th January 2011

A report by Health Inspectorate Wales has found "shortcomings" in the treatment by mental health agencies of a son who killed his mother in May 2009.

Following the publication of the report Dr Peter Higson, chief executive of HIW, said: "The purpose of our investigation was to identify learning to ensure that mental health services are better able to minimise the risk of similar incidents in the future. While our review concluded that this homicide could not have been predicted, it has highlighted a number of shortcomings."
