Richard Baker Represents The Family Of A Man Neglected By Harrogate Hospital



Richard Baker represented the family of Graham Roskell, a man who was admitted to Harrogate Hospital with a degenerative brain condition in October 2012. Despite recommendations that Graham receive one-to-one nursing care he was permitted to leave the ward unnoticed and escape the hospital by accessing the secure children’s ward and climbing over a wall. He died from hyperthermia whilst trying to walk back to his home. The North Yorkshire Coroner, Robert Turnbull, returned a narrative verdict expressing his concern at the ‘gross failures’ that led to Graham’s death and concluding that his death was contributed to by neglect.
