Families accept damages over Nottingham NHS endoscopy deaths

The families of three patients who all died after undergoing the same specialised endoscopy procedure have accepted damages from an NHS trust.

The patients all died after a procedure called an endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) at Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Following their deaths, a coroner issued a report calling for changes. The trust said improvements had been made.

William - known as Bill - Doleman, 76, Anita Burkey, 85, Peter Sellars, 72, and Carol Cole, 53, died in the space of about six months after undergoing the procedures.

An inquest found they died as a result of complications of the ERCP - where a tube is passed through a patient's throat to examine and treat possible gallstones and other conditions.

The families said they had accepted undisclosed damages from the trust over the deaths.
