Westminster Homecare continues to offer our sincere apologies to the family of Mr Pavitt for any distress caused to them due to the incident that occurred in March 2016 that may have contributed to Mr Pavitt’s untimely death.
Westminster Homecare prides itself in providing trained care workers to deliver excellent social care to all our service users. In this instance the care worker involved who was fully trained, failed to follow policies and procedures of the company and as a result caused a delay in Mr Pavitt receiving medical treatment.
The care worker was dealt with immediately following an investigation and dismissed from our employment.
Westminster Homecare worked in a transparent manner along side the Local Authority safeguarding team and fully co-operated with the Coroner’s inquest. This was a tragic accident that should not have occurred.
Our condolences and offer of support remain with Mr Pavitt’s family.
Please direct all enquiries via email to Alison Foster, Director of Operations, Westminster Homecare
