- 11 May 2012
- From the section Hampshire & Isle of Wight
The date for an inquest has been set into the death of a pensioner at the Gosport War Memorial Hospital in Hampshire 14 years ago.
Gladys Richards, 91, died after being injected with painkilling drugs at the hospital.
Her inquest will take place at Portsmouth Coroners Court between 5 and 15 December 2012.
Inquests into 10 other deaths found that drugs were a contributory factor in some cases.
Police files on the 10 deaths were submitted to the Crown Prosecution Service in 2006, but none ended in a prosecution.
At the time of her death Mrs Richards had been admitted to the hospital while her family tried to find her a care home.
