6 year old Jack Adcock: Medics charged with manslaughter

A doctor and two nurses have been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence over the death of a six-year-old boy. Jack Adcock, from Glen Parva, who had Down’s syndrome, was admitted to Leicester Royal Infirmary on 18 February 2011 suffering vomiting. He later suffered a heart attack and efforts to revive him failed. Dr Hadiza Bawa-Garba, Theresa Taylor and Isabel Amaro are due before Leicester magistrates on 23 January. An inquest into Jack’s death was adjourned in 2013. Fiona Morrison, specialist prosecutor with the CPS Special Crime Division, said: “Having completed our review, we have concluded there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Dr Bawa-Garba, Sister Taylor and Staff Nurse Amaro to each face charges of gross negligence manslaughter.”
