The relatives of patients who died at Gosport War Memorial Hospital around twenty years ago, say lives could have been saved if the Police had acted properly at the time.

David Wilson is among those making the accusation.

His aunt Dulcie Middleton died at the hospital in 2001.

Mr Wilson says the police should have done more after a relative first went to the police in 1998.

My Aunt was one of a hundred other patients who died at that hospital, who needn’t have done if Hampshire Constabulary had followed the procedures set out by the Association of Chief Police Officers.
