THE mum of an autistic teenager who drowned in the bath says the ‘NHS killed my boy’ following a tribunal’s damning report of a doctor who had been in charge of his care.

On Sunday the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) found Dr Valerie Murphy had shown no remorse after 18-year-old Connor Sparrowhawk died in an NHS care unit.

His mum Dr Sara Ryan has campaigned tirelessly for justice since her son’s death and said the report reached the ‘right decision.’

She added on social media: “The NHS killed my boy, I can’t make any sense of this.

“It then, almost as brutally, tried to destroy me.

“I expect a full apology from the county council and Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group for commissioning such terrible services.”

Connor, who had epilepsy, autism and a learning disability, drowned in a bath at Slade House in Headington in 2013.

Following a hearing, which began in August, the tribunal found several failures had been proven and concluded Dr Murphy’s fitness to practise had been ‘impaired by reason of misconduct’.

In a statement released on Sunday afternoon, the MPTS said the tribunal will reconvene on February 19 for three days, to consider a sanction for Dr Murphy whose: ‘misconduct has adversely affected the reputation of the profession.’
