PCC Michael Lane comments on retirement of GWMH investigation lead

21 June 2019

“I want to add my voice to reassuring the families and all those involved with the current investigation at Gosport War Memorial Hospital that a change in the policing lead of this investigation will not be allowed to disrupt or delay progress with this important work.

“I have been regularly briefed by the Chief Constable on progress made by the independent team, and the recruitment of a candidate to take on the policing lead. I am delighted that DAC Neil Jerome has been appointed – an appointment that reflects the importance this high profile investigation has and merits.

“As Police and Crime Commissioner, I have also been clear that costs must not be an issue in terms of limiting the appropriate scope and pace of this investigation, and that operational capacity must also be maintained.

“I am glad therefore that my bid for additional funding has been accepted by the Home Office to ensure there is no conflict of priority and resourcing.”
