1 minute read

Nearly five years on from the broadcast of the damning Panorama documentary that shed light in the living conditions of residents of secure hospital Whorlton Hall, four members of staff have now been found guilty of ill-treating residents.

The guilty verdict comes as no surprise for family members of former residents that had been raising the alarm about the treatment of their relatives in the unit for years.

Rachel Thain, a member of our specialist Abuse legal team, is working closely with family members of former residents to help them get compensation and access additional support following their experiences at the unit.
