Scientists in the South are planning to carry out research that will improve life for hundreds of children with Down's Syndrome. They want to develop a simple screening programme for a type of breathing problem with long term risks.
Three quarters of children with Down's suffer from the condition when they sleep. Christine Alsford spoke to Jo Baddams from Totton near Southampton whose son Jack suffered with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and Dr Cathy Hill who will head up the research when it starts shortly.
A man with Down's Syndrome is suing a Kent healthtrust after a 'do NOT resuscitate' order was put on his medical file without his or his family's knowledge. The report was compiled by Fred, Sangeeta and Tom Savvides.
