Milton Keynes Hospital sorry for death of Harry Mould
Martin Wetherill, Milton Keynes Hospital's medical director, has apologised to the parents of Harry Mould after a coroner ruled that "gross failures" had contributed to his death.
The five-year-old was admitted to the hospital after an asthma attack in March 2009 and was transferred to Leicester Royal Infirmary the next day, and died there four days later.
Deputy Leicester coroner Donald Coutts-Wood recorded a narrative verdict and said Harry had died of natural causes, contributed to by neglect.
