Surgery not at fault in death of King’s Lynn man
The inquest into the death of a 91-year-old King's Lynn man has concluded that post-surgery complications at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital were not caused by mistakes in the medical care he was given.
Peter Perrow, who lived on Sluice Road, passed away on Monday of this week, having been admitted with lower abdominal pain on Wednesday, November 16.
Norfolk coroner, William Armstrong, confirmed at the inquest hearing in Norwich yesterday that Mr Perrow was originally from Portishead, in Somerset, and had died due to sepsis following hernia surgery.
He said: 'It is clear that this surgery had to be carried out and that it was carried out properly and correctly.'
