Parents Hope For Answers

The parents of a 20 month old girl from Bedfordshire who died after care in hospital are hoping an inquest will answer questions about why there were delays in diagnosing her condition.

Jasmine Hughes from Hitchin was treated at the Lister Hospital, Stevenage, Hertfordshire but later transferred to the Great Ormond Street Hospital, London, where she died in February 2011.

It's thought she died as a result of a post viral condition.  An inquest into Jasmine's death started at St Pancras Coroner's Court on Thursday 19 April 2012.

The parents are calling for a full investigation into the standard of care provided at both the Lister Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital.  They are concerned repeated worries were not listened to, and that there were delays in her being diagnosed.
