A couple whose baby died from sepsis as a result of a chest infection have been told by Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt he is looking to push through reforms to the 111 NHS helpline.
An NHS England report found that 16 mistakes contributed to the death of 12-month-old William Mead in December 2014.
His mother, Melissa, 29, told ITV News on Tuesday she believes William would still be alive if she had been given the right advice by doctors and 111.
She and Paul Mead met with Mr Hunt on Thursday. He said he will look to implement reforms to the 111 helpline which would allow call handlers access to patient's medical records.
William's parents have also been invited to meet with Sir Bruce Keogh, medical director for NHS England next month, along with other leading medical figures to spearhead the campaign for sepsis awareness.
Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt promised the parents of William Mead in a private meeting that he'll push for reforms to the NHS 111 helpline.
Mother of baby who died from sepsis as a result of a chest infection believes her son would still be alive if she'd got the right advice.
The NHS non-emergency helpline cannot identify when children and babies have potentially deadly illnesses, according to a report.
