London

353 known cases 1993 – 2019
137 inquiry reports

In addition to the Inquiry reports here NHS London commissioned two reports into mental health homicides in London between January 2002 – December 2006.

The report by consultants Verita found 26 mental health homicide cases during that period and their report was published.

The report by Caring Solutions Ltd found 69 cases over the same period and investigated at a sample of 40 cases (which included a very high number of ‘stranger’ homicides). The report was not published. A copy was obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
