David Fuller has been sentenced for two murders

David Fuller has today been sentenced two life sentences for the murders of Wendy Knell and Caroline Pierce and a further 12 years for the crimes he committed against the 78 identified victims in hospital morgues.  The court heard harrowing evidence from a number of family members of Mr Fuller’s victims about how they have been affected by his despicable crimes.

Following the sentencing of David Fuller, Miles Scott, the Chief Executive of Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust issued a statement in which he has said: “As requested by the Secretary of State, we will work with the families and NHS Resolution to agree a compensation scheme without the pain and delay that may be caused by individual claim action.”

This is a very promising statement from Mr Scott and I hope that the Trust and NHS Resolution will meet this commitment.  However, to date,  I have had no confirmation from the Trust, NHS Resolution or their solicitors agreeing to or proposing any compensation scheme.  I remain committed to working with the Trust to produce a fair scheme that puts the families at the centre and makes sure that those I represent are fairly and properly treated.
