Investigation launched into Jonnie Meek's death

An investigation has been launched in to the death of Jonnie Meek, who was three years old when he died at Stafford Hospital.

Meek died while he was being fed throughhis stomach in August 2014 and an inquest recorded natural causes for his death. The Stafford and Surrounds Clinical Commissioning Group is conducting the investigation in order to determine if Jonnie received adequate care at the hospital.

The police officials are conducting an independent review of the data given to the Child Death Overview Panel.The board is in charge of evaluating data on all deaths of children in the hospital.Jonnie's parents pointed out that he was given a different type of milk feed than his usual feed and this new type of milk feed had made him sick earlier. The parents,who are from Cannock, said that he may have had an allergic reaction and they were also critical of the care he received at the hospital.

Cannock MP Amanda Milling has also contacted the commissioning group on behalf of Jonnie's mother.Ms Milling said she could not comment on the case. Ms Keeling contacted both the commissioning group and University Hospital of North Midlands (UHNM) NHS Trust and both institutions have launched investigations into the matter.
