Anorexic student Averil Hart 'let down' by NHS

A student who died of a heart attack caused by anorexia could have been saved if the NHS had cared for her properly, a report has found.

Averil Hart, 19, from Newton, Suffolk, died in Norwich in 2012 at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

The Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman found she did not receive "appropriate care and treatment".
