British Politician Keith Vaz Says Australian 2Day FM DJ's Mel Greig And Michael Christian Are Being Given More Support Than The Family Of Suicide Nurse Jacinctha Saldanha

UK Politician Says Royal Prank Call DJ’s Have ‘More Support’ Than Suicide Nurse Family

A British politician, Keith Vaz, has claimed the surviving family of nurse Jacinctha Saldanha have been given less support than the two Australian DJ’s who prank called the hospital where she worked.

Mr Vaz, visited Saldanha’s family at their home in Southmead, Bristol over the weekend and said they have been left “shocked and bewildered” by her death, but have received no counselling from the Edward VII hospital.

Two days after Saldanha transferred a prank call from 2Day FM radio presenters to Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge’s personal nurse at the King Edward VII hospital, 46-year-old Saldanha committed suicide reportedly due to feeling of “shame” over the incident.

Now, as the repercussions of Saldanha’s death continue to unfold, accusations are mounting that the needs of her immediate family are not being met.

After visiting Ms Saldana’s husband, Benedict Barboza, and his two teenage children at their home in Southmead, Bristol, Mr Vaz publicly urged the Edward VII hospital to launch an inquiry into Ms Saldanha’s death and offer more help.
