A young mother was accused of being hysterical by doctors as her 13-month-old son was losing a fight for his life.
The medics at Doncaster Royal Infirmary repeatedly failed to see that Bobby Bushell had meningitis, and by the time they did - it was too late.
They completely ignored his mother's instincts and the tell-tale signs of the disease.
To add to the family's ordeal the health trust involved decided to fight them in court for five years - they lost and have now been forced to pay a five figure sum in compensation. David Hirst reports.
