Statement on Phoebe Willis case

Commenting today (22 September 2015), on various news reports regarding the tragic case of Phoebe Willis, Chris Perry, Director of Nursing for Weston Area Health NHS Trust said:

 “This is a tragic case and our thoughts are with Phoebe’s family at this extremely difficult time. We are unable to provide any further comment as this case is part of criminal proceedings.

“However, we can confirm that the nurse involved in this case was not employed by Weston General Hospital. She was employed by a company called Nutricia Limited who provided nutrition supply services to Weston as part of a region wide contract with hospitals in Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset. The nurse was called in by us and attended to Phoebe on our premises.”
