Inquest hears how woman died as a direct result of gastric bypass operation at the Whittington Hospital.

Miroslawa Fabinska, 35, contracted blood poisoning caused by a hernia which was not treated by medical staff in time.

Polish-born Miss Fabinska underwent gastric bypass surgery on September 11 last year but was readmitted to the Archway hospital’s A&E department on September 17 with symptoms of an infection to the stomach.
