Relative of NHS founder died after 'mistake' by two NHS trusts - inquest

Relative of NHS founder died after 'mistake' by two NHS trusts - inquest A relative of the man who founded the NHS died after a "life-threatening mistake" made by two NHS trusts, an inquest has heard. Roderick Bevan, the great-nephew of Nye Bevan, died last year after doctors at two hospitals failed to notify him about a lung tumour, the family's solicitor said. The tumour was identified during a PET scan at Boston Pilgrim Hospital in October 2016. Despite further appointments at that hospital, as well as the University Hospitals of Leicester Trust, Mr Bevan was not told he had lung cancer until January 2018.

Jurors at an inquest into her death, which began on Monday, were warned the hearing will include “distressing” evidence.

Rosa King, 33, died at Hamerton Zoo Park in Cambridgeshire in what has been described as a freak accident.

A zoo keeper who was mauled to death by a tiger in an enclosure with a defective lock, was doing her 'dream job', her mother has told an inquest . Ms McClay' s mother Fiona told the inquest her daughter would not have wanted the animal destroyed, as it was claimed that there was fault with the

She described Rosa as a “generous, kind, caring compassionate person” who “lived life to the full and followed her dreams”.

Mrs King said it was clear from the age of two that Rosa would end up working with animals.

“Family days out were often spent visiting zoos and animal parks,” she said.

Earlier, Coroner Nicholas Moss told the inquest jury in Huntingdon: “As you can imagine, some of the evidence in this case may be distressing.”

Jurors heard how Ms King was dragged across a paddock by a rare Malayan tiger called Cicip.

Mr Moss said: "We are not going to dwell on it that here is where Rosa’s body was found by a member of the public and it is likely Cicip dragged Rosa’s body to there."

The tiger was not put down after the incident and the decision was supported by her family, the park's director Andrew Swales said at the time.

He said: "Rosa was the life and soul of Hamerton Zoo Park.

"She loved working with the animals, particularly the big cats, and was an inspiration to those of us lucky enough to work with her as well as many visitors who benefited from her incredible knowledge of and passion for wildlife."

The inquest is set to last for two weeks.
