Inquest to investigate hospital death

A WESTON family hope an inquest looking into how a pensioner died at Weston General Hospital last year, will answer questions about his death.

Father-of-two Ronald Shute died on January 19, 2011, after undergoing checks for liver cancer at the hospital in Uphill.

The 74-year-old was married to Janet Shute and had two children, Gary and Nicola.

The inquest will be held at Flax Bourton Coroner’s Court tomorrow (Thurs) at 10am.

Jonathan Peacock, a partner at Irwin Mitchell solicitors, said: “Ron’s entire family have found it extremely hard to come to terms with their loss.

“Although nothing will bring him back, the family cannot begin to move on until they have answers and they very much hope that the inquest will shed light on the circumstances which led to his death.”
