Police Close Investigation Into Death At James Paget Hospital
A police investigation into the death of a patient at the James Paget hospital has ended with no charges being brought.
76-year-old James May died in September last year and in October a hospital worker was arrested on suspicion of murder.
In December the bail was cancelled and the worker in their 40s was told they would face no further charges.
Now officers say they have finished their investigation alongside the Care Quality Commission and the Health and Safety Executive.
Norfolk Police have released the following statement to Heart: "Norfolk Constabulary can confirm a wider police investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of a patient at the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston in September 2013 has now concluded.

"A file will be prepared for Her Majesty’s Coroner and an inquest will be held in due course.
"The investigation related to the death of James May, 76, from Great Yarmouth, at the hospital on Friday 20 September 2013."
