Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt to meet grieving parents in NHS baby death cover-up case

  • Parents Allyn and Jenny Condon’s eight-week-old son Ben died in April
  • They exposed medics trying to cover up failings they say led to his death
  • Jeremy Hunt has agreed to a face-to-face meeting in the new year 

Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt will meet heartbroken parents who exposed health bosses trying to cover up failings they say led to the death of their baby. Mr Hunt, who is understood to have been deeply moved by the efforts of Allyn and Jenny Condon, has agreed to a face-to-face summit in the new year after The Mail on Sunday revealed their campaign for answers after their eight-week-old son Ben died in April.

When Ben died, medics told the couple that their son was not strong enough to fight off a virus. But two months later they were told Ben had also contracted a bacterial infection – which he could have picked up in hospital. The Condons then exposed how senior staff at Bristol Royal Children’s Hospital discussed deleting a key recording in which they admitted mistakes were made. On the recording, one doctor said Ben’s parents were ‘absolutely right’ to say Ben should have been given antibiotics much sooner.
