AN INQUEST date has been set for an inmate who died at Lewes Prison.

Jamie Osborne, 19, took his own life on the hospital wing of Lewes Prison, run by Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, in February 2016.

Last year the trust admitted failing to provide care and treatment in a safe manner.

They were fined £200,000.

The trust admitted its own investigation had found “clear failings for which we are deeply sorry”.

Mr Osborne had already attempted suicide in the general wing of the prison after he was remanded in custody in 2015.

He was moved to the hospital wing, but staff failed to monitor properly and treat him.

He died on 12 February 2016.

Dr Paul Lelliott, deputy chief inspector of hospitals at the Care Quality Commission, said he hoped it would send “a clear message that people in prison have the same right to high quality mental healthcare as any other member of our society”.

Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, based in Worthing, has come under fire for several deaths linked to its care.

These include the case of Donald Lock, who was stabbed 39 times by patient Matthew Daley after a car crash in 2015.

The trust was ordered to pay £25,000 in court costs and a £170 surcharge following the prosecution brought by the Care Quality Commission.

An inquest will take place in Eastbourne from February 24 until March 3.
