Tom tells the story of his sister, Alison Bell, and her family's uncovering of the truth about what happened to her in the care of an NHS Trust. He describes the nature of the various investigations that were held into Alison's death and the role of the prevailing cultures within the public sector organisations they have dealt with; the NHS, Police, CPS and Regulatory Bodies.

This true and ongoing story shines a light on the personal, emotional and financially costly impact that public sector service cultures can have on the lives of their service-users and their own bottom-line.

Tom’s lived and current experience will help us to explore the implications for our own practice and the organisations we might seek to influence, manage and lead.

You can also join Tom and myself in a workshop to explore the implications for our leadership development from his experience on October 22nd.
