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.
