'Inhumane' treatment at the hands of the NHS

28th April 2010

A woman honoured by the Prime Minister last year has died after being treated in what her relatives call an "inhumane" way by NHS staff.

Her family said she was left without access to water at the Luton and Dunstable Hospital in Bedfordshire and did not have soiled sheets changed for up to six hours. A spokesman for the hospital said they were investigating the matter and added: "We have apologised for any distressing circumstances, recognising how upsetting some aspects of personal care can be for relatives."
