Mum threatens to take legal action over daughter’s death

A young girl was booked to see a specialist because of her persistent headaches. Before the visit, her condition deteriorated and a brain tumour was diagnosed.

The girl died and her mother is threatening to sue the hospital unless the hospital takes responsibility for the death.
