Nicolas Taaffe (Personal Representative of the Estate of Eleanor Taaffe, Dec'd) v East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust




Paramedics attending a 50-year-old woman suffering from severe chest pains had acted negligently in failing to advise her to attend hospital to have her condition properly investigated. Had she been admitted to hospital, her condition would have been diagnosed and she would have avoided the fatal cardiac arrest she suffered five days later.
