Case may be referred to General Medical Council after GP dismissed Charlotte Foster’s symptoms of pulmonary embolism as back pain
A sales executive died from the side effects of a pill prescribed for acne and as a contraceptive three weeks after her GP advised her to go for a spa day when she complained of pain and shortness of breath, a coroner has ruled.
Business studies graduate Charlotte Foster, 23, was showing symptoms of a pulmonary embolism but was told by the GP that she simply had back pain, the Shropshire coroner John Ellery concluded.
