Coroner says GPs’ knowledge of anorexia ‘woeful’

24 February 2020 – BBC News

Madeline Wallace, from Peterborough, died in January 2018 from sepsis.

Coroner Sean Horstead told the inquest at Huntingdon Law Courts “different clinical decisions” would not have prevented her death and delivered a narrative conclusion saying Miss Wallace died of natural causes caused by severe anorexia.

However, Mr Horstead said he would write a Prevention of Future Deaths Report and send it to NHS England Chief Executive Sir Simon Stevens and Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
