A woman who suffered a heart attack was not given any initial tests for 35 minutes and then waited for an hour before being seen by a senior doctor, according to a report by the Public Services Ombudsman. She then died at Singleton Hospital shortly after being diagnosed.
Due to the serious nature of this illness and the high mortality rate, clinicians would be expected to prioritise the tests to diagnose this condition. However in Mrs. A's case the clinicians failed to do this.
The Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board was ordered to apologise to the patient's family and to pay £5,000.
