NHS complaint made as grandfather fights for life
A grandfather is fighting for his life after being released from hospital too early, with a formal complaint to Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust likely to be made as a result.
Neil Wynne's wife Pat explained her husband was taken to Stafford hospital on Monday (July 18th) but was sent home after doctors could find nothing wrong with him.
But shortly after arriving back at their Stone residence, Mr Wynne collapsed and was rushed to University Hospital of North Staffordshire, reports the Staffordshire Newsletter.
He is now being sedated and is on a life support machine, but his organs could fail and he might have a heart attack when he comes round.
"We hadn't been home for an hour when he collapsed and I sent for an ambulance," Mrs Wynne told the news provider.
“We're feeling quite bitter, we said this is a complaint we can't let go."
Manjit Obhrai, medical director at the trust - which serves 320,000 local people - said an investigation was being launched.
