    The death of a premature baby in 2001 led to a "20-year cover-up" of mistakes by health workers, an independent inquiry has found. Elizabeth Dixon, from Hampshire, died due to a blocked breathing tube shortly before her first birthday. The government, which ordered the inquiry in 2017, said the mistakes in her care were "shocking and harrowing". The inquiry report by Dr Bill Kirkup said some of those involved had been "persistently dishonest". Elizabeth, known as Lizzie, died from asphyxiation after suffering a blockage in her tracheostomy tube while under the care of a private

    New guidelines for assessing people with coronavirus who go to hospital were amended after an outcry from parents of children with special needs. The emergency guidelines published by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) are designed to help determine how much treatment a patient will receive. Those deemed "completely dependent for personal care for whatever reason" will be offered end-of-life care rather than restorative treatment. This now excludes people with learning difficulties or cerebral palsy. In a statement NICE said the system was "not per

    A father has described the "huge impact" of losing respite care for his young daughter who has complex special needs. Tim Clarke and his wife Ana look after their six-year-old daughter Molly at home in Worcester.

    A backlog of thousands of deaths of people with learning disabilities awaiting official review has grown further, despite NHS England committing in spring last year to “address” the buildup. Information obtained by HSJ shows the number of incomplete reviews increased slightly between May and November last year – from 3,699 to 3,802. The “national learning disabilities mortality review” programme – known as LeDeR – was launched in 2016 and is meant to review all deaths of people aged four and over. Mencap head of policy and public affairs, Dan Scorer, said: “It is unacceptable t
