  • Another little one who lost life.
    Hopefully a post-mortem will reveal the cause of death………and the parents won’t have to wait months to be advised.
    I know of a case in SA where a lady passed away in hospital. It was over 12 months before the relatives were informed of the cause of death…… in the Coroner’s Court.
