A FOUR-YEAR-OLD boy died of sepsis after a "rude" 111 call handler failed to tell his mother to take him to hospital or send an ambulance to his home. Sherry Keane, 28, rang the health advice line in a panic after her son Jaydan-Lee developed a rash, vomited, appeared lethargic and began gasping for breath. But she put him to bed with calpol after claiming the "rude" worker failed to realise how seriously ill he was, talked over her and didn't call an ambulance to respond. Paramedics rushed Jaydan-Lee to hospital when he was found unresponsive the next day. He was given CPR and taken to Aintree University Hospital where he was pronounced dead. A post-mortem revealed he died of meningococcal septicaemia. An investigation later found Jaydan-Lee would have likely survived if an ambulance had been dispatched by the 111 handler. At an inquest into his death, the coroner said: "During this consultation, the adviser failed to identity, explore and action several red flags. She failed to probe and access the information required in order to complete a proper assessment. It was quite evident the adviser did not listen and question effectively." The finding was supported by an internal investigation ordered by the NHS trust. A narrative verdict was recorded. Mrs Keane, from Liverpool, sued North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust for medical negligence and received £15,000 compensation when they admitted liability.

Scientists in the US have expressed fears that the Trump administration is brushing aside safety concerns in a bid to deliver a Covid-19 vaccine in time for the November election. Experts said they worried that a White House anxious for good news will push the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to overlook insufficient data from trials of a vaccine. Donald Trump announced in May the Operation Warp Speed initiative to develop and deliver 300 million doses of a safe, effective coronavirus vaccine by January 2021. The date has since been brought forward. Approving vaccines usually takes years as the threshold is typically higher than for other drugs because they will be used in millions of otherwise healthy people. This would mean that even rare side effects could affect many more people than a drug that treats a specific illness.
