Isle of Wight NHS Trust admits failings over death reports

08 March 2019 – BBC News

A NHS trust has admitted its failings in not disclosing abnormalities over the deaths of patients to the coroner.

Isle of Wight Coroner Caroline Sumeray told a hearing that 20 Serious Incident (SI) investigations were not reported to her by the island’s NHS trust before the bodies were cremated.

She said some staff did not understand the nature of the inquest process.

The Trust’s Chief Executive, Maggie Oldham, was fined £500 by the coroner.
