We’d like to thank those who have raised their concerns with us about the content of Claire Phillips’ social media post over the weekend.

The content is clearly both distressing and abhorrent to us all.

We can confirm that she is not an employee of BSMHFT and does not work for the Trust in any capacity.

To be clear, had we determined that this person was our employee, we would have applied the appropriate Trust processes to hold her to account for her actions.
