Woman Charged With 10-Year-Old's Manslaughter

A North Somerset woman has been charged with the manslaughter of a 10-year-old girl on the grounds of gross negligence.

Phoebe Willis, who was from Locking, died at Weston General Hospital in August 2012 after she went in to get her feeding tube change.

33-year-old Carrie-Anne Nash, from North Somerset, is due in court in November.

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."
