Senior coroner Crispin Butler heard three staff from Carewatch Mid Bucks had failed to spot tablets handed over by the pharmacy were for a male patient and instead administered them to an 87-tear-old woman.

Heather Planner died at Wycombe Hospital on 01.04.2019 from the result of a stroke.

Mr Butler said action should be taken to prevent similar deaths and issued a Prevention of Future Deaths report after. He will also communicate his concerns to the Chief Coroner and CQC.
