A lack of specialist neurologists at Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone poses a risk of future patient deaths, a coroner has warned.
Assistant Coroner for Inner London North, Richard Brittain, has sent a report to Barts NHS Trust, which is responsible for Whipps Cross, following the death of 51-year-old Marina Fagan.
The report follows an inquest on April 22 into the death of the Chingford mother-of-four, who died from a rare neurological condition, Posterior Reversable Encephalopathy Syndrome (PRES).
Family of Mrs Fagan was represented by Andrew Harrison, a partner at Hodge Jones & Allen
