Independent Report Published into the Death of Jonnie Meek

An independent case review report has been published today into the death of three-year-old Jonnie Meek.

Jonnie had the rare genetic condition De Grouchy Syndrome and had to be fed through a tube in his stomach.  He died on 11 August 2014 during a planned admission to the former Stafford Hospital, which was part of the former Mid Staffordshire NHS Trust. He had been admitted to introduce a new milk formula in his feed.

The report, by Dr Martin Farrier, a consultant paediatrician at Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust, was commissioned by Cannock Chase Clinical Commissioning Group in an attempt to provide a resolution to a number of questions raised by Jonnie’s family, who live in Cannock.
