Richard Baker represented the family of Freya Wells, a young girl who was almost five years old at the time that she died at the Kingston Hospital on the 22nd November 2012. The inquest disclosed catastrophic failings in the care provided to Freya, as a consequence of which a clear opportunity to save her life was lost. Dr Sean Cummings, hearing the inquest at the West London Coroners’ Court concluded that Freya’s death was contributed to “in a major part by neglect”. Following the inquest he indicated that for the first time in his career he intended to write to the GMC asking that Dr Rosita Ibrahim (the Registrar who failed Freya at the hospital) be suspended from practice pending a full investigation of her professional competence.
