Inquest To Be Heard For Woman Who Died At Bristol Hospital

Devastated Husband Looking For Answers


An inquest is due to take place on Tuesday 19th February to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a woman who died at St Michael’s Hospital in Bristol.

Joyce Davies, 72, was admitted to the hospital where she underwent keyhole surgery to remove a cyst from her pelvis on September 8th 2011. Her condition deteriorated following the operation and she passed away on September 10th following a night in the intensive care unit.

HM Coroner for Avon, Maria Voisin, will hold the inquest, listed as a one day hearing, at the Coroner’s Court in Flax Bourton on Tuesday at 10am.

Luke Trevorrow, a medical law and patients’ rights expert at law firm Irwin Mitchell, is representing Joyce’s husband, Alan, from Southmead, Bristol.

He said: “Mr Davies was absolutely devastated by the death of his wife and hopes that the inquest will shed some light on the circumstances leading to it.”
