Paul v Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (2020)
This case was brought by the widow and two daughters of the deceased. He had been admitted to the defendant’s hospital with chest and jaw pains in 2012. Investigations were carried out and he was discharged. Some 14 months later, while out with his two daughters, their father collapsed and died in front of them. A claim for psychiatric injury caused by witnessing his death was brought by the claimants, who argued the correct medical procedures had not been followed at the time of the visit to hospital.
