An inquest into the death of a Solihull pensioner, who died more than seven years ago at the Maypole Nursing Home in Birmingham, gets under way at Birmingham Coroner’s Court on Monday March 1st.

The three-week hearing, which will be held before a jury, will examine the circumstances which led to the death of 77 year old Leslie Vines, formerly of Cranmore Road in Shirley who, died on 7th September 2002. 

Mr Vines was transferred to the Maypole Nursing Home for full time nursing care, but spent just 10 days at the home before his death on 7th September 2002.

Speaking on behalf of the family, Victoria Blankstone, a medical negligence expert with Irwin Mitchell Solicitors said:  “Hazel and her family are relieved that, after seven long years fighting for answers, they will finally learn more about the circumstances which led to Mr Vines’ death at the Maypole Nursing Home.”
