Mother launches attack on hospital over toddler death

The mother of a toddler who died after doctors in London failed to spot her fatal brain condition in time to save her has launched an attack on "shared care" between hospitals.

Two-year-old Alice Mason had successfully undergone treatment for a brain tumour two months before she was taken ill in March 2011.

She died days later, having developed fluid on the brain, an inquest at West London Coroner's Court has heard.

The youngster's care was shared between her family's local district general hospital, Kingston Hospital in Surrey, cancer specialists at the Royal Marsden Hospital, in Chelsea, west London, and a neurosurgical team at St George's Hospital, south London.
