The lawyer representing Frank Golby's family, who've received a five figure payout from the University Hospital Coventry after doctors failed to spot he had lung cancer, said:
"The Golby family have been devastated by what has happened.
The fact that Frank's cancer was completely missed back in 2010 meant he never had the opportunity to access the cancer treatment he so desperately needed."
"Following the Trust's full admission that the errors led to Frank's untimely death, we very much hope that the Hospital has since learnt lessons from this tragedy and has put in place changes in the way scans are checked and reviewed, to ensure that a fundamental error such as this is not allowed to happen again."
