Alasdair Henderson represented the family of Sarah Mulenga in the inquest into her death. Ms Mulenga died after two student paramedics who attended her failed to conduct basic observations and refused to take her to hospital. The Coroner ruled that the failure to perform even standard monitoring meant that neglect contributed to Ms Mulenga’s death. The case has been widely reported in the media as highlighting growing concerns that health service cuts and reforms are leaving the emergency services over-stretched.
