Harry Procko Exclusive: ‘Doctors got it wrong’, says Medical Director by Daniel Robbins – Notts TV News

The Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust’s medical director has admitted that ‘doctors got it wrong’ over the treatment of Harry Procko.

Dr Stephen Fowlie is heard in the recording below talking about the treatment of four-year-old Harry, who is autistic, who died after being taken to the Queens Medical Centre last June. He was initially taken to the hospital with vomiting and diarrhoea and the hospital said he needed some tests. But after nine hours of waiting in unfamiliar surroundings, Harry became very distressed and his parents made the decision to take him home for the evening. The next day when he was taken back, doctors planned for a blood test to be taken and fluids to be given for dehydration but that never happened and two days after he was discharged, Harry collapsed, turned blue and died a short time later.

Here is what Dr Fowlie is heard saying when asked about the chain of events:
