Northampton General Hospital have spoken of their sorrow after the Northamptonshire Senior Coroner criticised the trust for its treatment of a man who died while waiting for an operation.
Mike Martin suffered a fatal haemorrhage as he waited to undergo surgery.
"We express our sincere condolences to Mrs Martin and her family and are deeply sorry for their loss. We acknowledge there was a failure to provide Mr Martin with the pain relief he needed and to assess him more promptly.
Following Mr Martin's death the Trust undertook a detailed internal investigation as well as seeking additional advice from an independent expert. We also met with Mrs Martin and her family to share the findings."
