The Lampard Inquiry. Nicholas Griffin KC is Counsel to the Inquiry, supported by Rebecca Harris.

The Department of Health and Social Care has today, 10 April 2024, published the terms of reference for the independent statutory Inquiry into the deaths of mental health inpatients in Essex.

The Inquiry - which is chaired by Baroness Lampard CBE - was set up to understand the events that led to the tragic deaths of mental health inpatients under the care of NHS trusts in Essex between 2000 and 2023.

The terms of reference will enable the Inquiry to continue the work of the former Essex Mental Health Independent Inquiry and will play an important role in identifying learnings from those events for the future.

Nicholas and Rebecca are working alongside Catherine Turtle of TLT who is Solicitor to the Inquiry
