Coroner finds neglect contributed to suicide



Gaurang Naik represented the family before Asst Coroner Caroline Topping, at the Inquest touching on the death of Catherine Robinson, aged 32, a mother of 2.

The Asst Coroner found that Catherine, who suffered from depression and anxiety, sadly committed suicide contributed by the neglect of the Surrey & Borders Partnership (Mental Health & LD).
She found that there was gross failure of basic care and had she been given proper support and her concerns listened to, she could have been kept safe.
