A father's calling for better training for medical staff, after three doctors failed to diagnose his son's brain tumour. On three occasions, Chris Buckley went to his GP surgery in Essex suffering problems with his speech and memory - and was prescribed drugs for depression.
It wasn't until he took himself to the accident and emergency department at Basildon Hospital, that a tumour was discovered. Despite surgery, he died in May. Chris' dad, Malcolm, believes his son would have received better treatment, if he'd been diagnosed earlier. Here is Elodie Harper's report.
