    How sad.

    "The serious incident review found there should have been some follow-up after seeing Mr Provins in hospital although he had been left with numbers to call if he felt suicidal again.

    However, the report concluded that because Mr Provins had refused offers of further help, it was unlikely to have made any difference to the outcome."

    And this is something we are all familiar with: no follow-up from the authorities, with the responsibility instead being placed on the vulnerable person himself. How many times have I seen that in my parents' case!
