The parents of a toddler who died after doctors in London failed to sport her fatal brain condition claim that a catalogue of chances to act on their daughter's chances were missed.
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 heard. On Thursday the child's mother, Rosalind Mason told the inquest:
I'm still not convinced that shared care is a safe option for providing care to very sick children, and I'm afraid our experience of even trying to learn the truth about our daughter has been hugely complicated.
We have found that going through the reports they have written in answer to our questions has been very lengthy, and we have not agreed with many of the things they have written, and asked them to correct them. It's saddening that this situation is in place.
