An NHS Ombudsman report has sadly found that a catalogue of errors by staff at James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, led to the tragic death of a six-month old boy.

 Master Harris James sadly passed away in 2015 after doctors at James Paget Hospital misdiagnosed a heart complaint as pneumonia and gave him oxygen, antibiotics and fluids. They did not ask a cardiologist about his abnormalities and he sadly suffered a fatal heart attack.

 The findings of the NHS Ombudsman as reported today, confirmed that had staff acted on investigation results and escalated his care, the Trust would have identified his heart difficulties and provided the correct treatment to save his life.
