Hospital finally agrees to release Cholmondeley records
The family of the late Tom Gilbert Cholmondeley has withdrawn a case against MP Shah Hospital demanding they be furnished with his medical history records.
In a consent filed in court, the parties; Hugh George Cholmondeley, Fifth Baron, Lord Delamere has been appointed as the next of kin to the late Thomas Patrick Gilbert Cholmondeley for the purposes of the case he sued the hospital.
“Within 7 days from the date of filing this consent, the respondents do provide Lord Delamere with the requisite application for the release of a certified copy of the deceased medical report file,” reads the consent.
The consent was filed in court on Friday.
Following the consent High court judge Chacha Mwita agreed to withdrawn the case from the court.
In the case, Cholmondeley’s father had sued the hospital arguing that failure to provide him with his late son’s health records has made him unable to administer the deceased’s estate which is at risk of wasting away.
In his suit papers, George claimed that he wanted to administer his son’s estate in accordance with the law and the wishes of his only child because it is vulnerable to inter-meddling.
Cholmondeley died on August 17, 2016 while undergoing treatment at the hospital after undergoing a hip replacement.
Among the documents George wanted the hospital compelled to give him included the deceased’s medical history as recorded, pre-operative cause received, the operation and activities that took place in the operating theatre.
