Deaths at Essex NHS Trust intuitions probed by police

From BBC - September 14, 2017

Nine NHS institutions, including mental health units, are being investigated as part of a police inquiry into multiple deaths at a trust.

Up to 25 deaths at the North Essex Partnership University Trust dating back to 2000 are now being probed by Essex Police.

Inquiries began after Matthew Leahy's death at the Linden Centre in 2012.

Police would not confirm which units were being probed. The trust said it was "cooperating fully" with police.

Initially, it was understood the police investigation was looking at up to 20 deaths at the Linden Centre in Chelmsford, but now deaths at multiple centres run by the trust are being investigated.

The force said a number of people had been spoken to during the inquiry but no arrests had been made.
