Following the tragic death of Joanne (Joe) Bingley on 30 April 2010 the Joanne Bingley Memorial Foundation charity was set-up in her honour to campaign for improvements in Perinatal Mental Health.

Aims and Objectives : Joanne Bingley Memorial Foundation

Founders Statement “The charity exists to ensure future generations such as my daughter have access to the appropriate care and support, that services adhere to care quality standards and to inspire sustainable change in the perception and provision of maternal mental health services in the UK”

An Independent Investigation into Joanne’s death, carried out by the eminent expert Margaret Oates MBE, identified 21 critical failures in the health care that Joanne received which resulted in her avoidable death, a fact confirmed by the Coroner’s inquest in October 2011 and subsequently accepted by the NHS in civil court.

One of the key criticisms was the failure by the South and West Yorkshire Partnership Foundation Trust to provide a specialist Perinatal Mental Health Team as described by best practice.

Following years of campaigning £2m was released for the launch in March 2017 of Perinatal Mental Health Service across South and West Yorkshire
