Woman died of rare brain disease after doctors missed diagnosis

Posted on 16th June 2016

A coroner has issued a warning about a lack of neurologists after a woman whose severe headaches went undiagnosed for 13 days died from a rare brain disease.

Marina Fagan, a 51-year-old mother of four, was discharged following a two-day stay at Whipps Cross hospital, in Leytonstone, after investigations ruled out a brain haemorrhage.

The family of Mrs Fagan were represented by Andrew Harrison, a partner in the Medical Negligence Team.
