Doctor ‘responsible for the avoidable death of teacher following caesarean’ nearly killed another new mother

Dr Nadeem Azeez is one of two anaesthetists accused of failing to take basic steps to save the life of Frances Cappuccini, 30

An underqualified foreign doctor alleged to have been responsible for the “totally unexpected and avoidable” death of a young teacher following an emergency caesarean had nearly killed another new mother placed in his care, a court heard.  Dr Nadeem Azeez is one of two anaesthetists accused of failing to take basic steps to save the life of Frances Cappuccini, 30, as they attempted to bring her round from a general anaesthetic following the birth of her second child.

Mrs Cappuccini never regained consciousness and died in October 2012 following a massive heart attack as a result of a build-up of acid in her body from lack of oxygen. A report into her death following an internal investigation was redacted to remove reference to the previous incident involving Dr Azeez before it was sent to the coroner, Inner London Crown Court heard.

In March 2012, Dr Azeez, 52, had been responsible for anaesthetising a woman at the same hospital who had suffered a haemorrhage after giving birth and whose placenta needed removing in theatre.
