Hear­ing over death of woman

North Wales Weekly News - - WRITTEN BY YOU -

A PRE-IN­QUEST hear­ing has been held into the death of a preg­nant 22-year-old woman.

Shan­ice Ja­clyn Pri­est­ley, of Pen­maen Cres­cent, Conwy, died on Au­gust 24 last year.

The hear­ing in Ruthin was at­tended by le­gal rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Betsi Cad­wal­adr Univer­sity Health Board and Conwy County Bor­ough Coun­cil.

John Git­tins, se­nior coro­ner for North Wales Cen­tral, re­quested doc­u­ments con­cern­ing the qual­i­fi­ca­tions, train­ing and in­duc­tion records of Ms Pri­est­ley’s so­cial worker.

He also asked BCUHB so­lic­i­tor Gaynor Ky­nas­ton to share Ms Pri­est­ley’s med­i­cal records with the Pri­est­ley fam­ily and Conwy coun­cil.

All doc­u­ments must be shared by Oc­to­ber 30 as he wanted to keep “tight and proper” con­trol over his in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Ms Pri­est­ley’s un­cle, Mike Pri­est­ley, said his niece’s GP asked for and was given her preg­nancy records.

He said: “We don’t know why they were taken.”

Mr Pri­est­ley asked to be able to see these records and the coro­ner agreed.

The coro­ner said he did not have suf­fi­cient ev­i­dence to hold a jury’s in­quest but would hold an in­quest last­ing up to three days next spring. The hear­ing was ad­journed.
