A SECOND inquest into the death of John Moore-Robinson who was seen and discharged by Stafford Hospital doctors hours earlier is expected to be opened and adjourned on Monday.
The new hearing has been scheduled because new evidence has come to light into the 20-year-old’s death.
The telecommunications worker died of a ruptured spleen sustained when he came off his mountain bike in Cannock Chase but it was not spotted at Stafford Hospital.
He was sent home with painkillers and died less than 24 hours later.
His dad Frank Robinson has been battling for six years to get a new hearing because a report by Stafford Hospital consultant Ivan Phair which said Mr Moore-Robinson’s care had probably been negligent and his death avoidable was never presented at the first inquest.
The hospital’s then head of legal services Kate Levy wrote to Mr Phair asking him to erase his comments and was later sacked but a tribunal found she had been wrongfully and unfairly dismissed.
