Dr Anton van Dellen acts in inquest looking into death of 3 year old girl from cancer

News

Francesca Sio, who was 3 years old, died after a diagnosis of cancer was missed.  A coroner initially refused to hold an inquest to investigate the death.  However, after an expert report was obtained from Dr Sandie Bohin and a Judicial Review was issued in  the High Court, it was agreed that an inquest would be held.  Dr Anton van Dellen is instructed by Francesca’s family.  There has been extensive press coverage:
