Redditch diabetes death: Anger that nurse not struck off

The family of a diabetic woman who died at the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch have said they are "deeply frustrated" that the nurse responsible for her care has been spared being struck off.

Margaret Pitt died at the hospital in 2010. At a hearing on Thursday, Sister Jackie Charman admitted failing to check her blood sugar levels and did not offer her anything to eat at bedtime.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council gave Ms Charman a five-year caution order and said she could continue to work after further training.

Ms Pitt's husband David said he felt "disappointment, frustration and hurt" at the decision.
