Family of dead 16 year old boy call for criminal charges against Britain’s largest private mental health provider

WILLIAM AND BROTHER PHOTOThe family whose 16 year old son William Jordan killed himself at the Priory Hospital last year have written to police calling for a criminal investigation into the group. Earlier this year the Priory Group was fined £300,000 for breaching Health and safety laws in connection with the death of 14 year old Amy El Keria at one of their hospitals. My report was a headline on BBC1 TV and and BBC Radio 4.

  1. This is such a sad story, not least because it sounds as though William’s death could have been prevented. I’m glad you’ve brought it to people’s attention, so that William’s family can, at the very least, find some sort of closure – and that hopefully similar tragedies can be avoided. Your report was heartbreaking to watch; you can see the pain etched all over William’s father’s face.
