Coroner issues a Preventing Future Death report

News

Following submissions from Dr Anton van Dellen, the Coroner hearing the inquest investigating the death of 3-year old Francesca Sio decided to issue a Preventing Future Death report.  The report concerns the mixing of child and adult patients at Greenbrook Urgent Care Centre (UCC).  The Coroner decided that this creates a risk of children quietly deteriorating unnoticed.  The Coroner found that Greenbrook UCC’S arrangements give rise to circumstances creating a risk that other deaths will occur.  The Coroner is sending his report to Bromley Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and to Greenbrook UCC.  Dr Anton van Dellen represented Francesca’s father, John Sio.  There has been extensive press coverage of the inquest:
