Pregnant woman's death 'avoidable' if she had seen a consultant

A sheriff has ruled the death of a 38-year-old pregnant woman might have been avoided if she had been seen by a consultant after she was admitted to hospital with chest pains.

Caroline McCall was eight months pregnant when she was admitted to the Princess Royal Maternity Hospital in Glasgow with stabbing pains in her chest.

Following a fatal accident inquiry a sheriff has determined that the care she received was sub-standard and her death might have been avoided.
