Bristol hospital slammed

5th March 2008

A lack of specialists is putting children facing heart surgery at Bristol Children’s Hospital at risk, according to a new report.

An inquiry, which followed the death of baby Abbie Hattam in May 2006 when a member of staff made a mistake during a heart operation, found that there were not enough blood circulation specialists. The new report has found there was still such a shortage, however, the hospital said it had adequate cover and that children were not at risk.
