Pick Me Up! Special - - Real Life -

In a state­ment, Univer­sity Hospi­tals of Le­ices­ter NHS Trust said changes had been made based on les­sons learned from Ali’s care, adding, ‘DVTS are very dif­fi­cult to di­ag­nose clin­i­cally, and Ali­son was con­sid­ered at low risk of de­vel­op­ing a DVT. How­ever, there were op­por­tu­ni­ties dur­ing her care to carry out in­ves­ti­ga­tions and start treat­ment that may have re­sulted in a dif­fer­ent out­come for Ali­son. While no amount of money will make up for the loss of Ali­son, we do, how­ever, hope that the set­tle­ment will bring some se­cu­rity to Mr Tay­lor and their three chil­dren.’
