The mother of a 14-year-old girl who died under the care of The Priory says a £300,000 fine for the firm shows the firm put “profit before safety”.
Tania El-Keria said the fine following her daughter Tania’s death had opened the public’s eyes for what the Priory stood for – and hailed an “historic day for justice”.
She said: “Our Amy died in what we know to be a criminally unsafe hospital being run by the Priory.
“To us, the Priory are a morally-bankrupt company.
“They continue to take large sums of public money allowing our children to suffer by placing profit over safety.”
