Mrs Astbury, 66, died in April 2007 after she was not given insulin while an in-patient at Stafford Hospital.
The Trust pleaded guilty through its barrister to breaching the Health and Safety at Work Act by failing to properly manage and organise hospital services, including its systems for record-keeping, patient information and communication between staff members.
