The family of a five-year-old girl from Newport,
who died of an asthma attack, are calling for her
GP to be struck off.
Ellie-May Clark was taken to the local surgery by her mother,
but her doctor refused to see her because she was late
for the appointment.
She died a few hours later.
A General Medical Council investigation found that the GP's
failure to see and assess the child did not meet with the standards
required of a doctor.
Nick Palit reports.
Memories of happier times.
These photos all Brandi Clark has left to remember her granddaughter,
Ellie-May, who died of an asthma attack.
Mum Shanice brought the five-year-old to
the doctor's surgery
in the Malpas area of Newport after she was sent home from school
early because teachers were concerned about her breathing.
She had made an emergency appointment but was
a few minutes late.
She did tell them she might be five minutes late because she had to sort
out bringing the kids here and then phoning for a lift
because she wasn't driving at the time.
And when she got in, she was a few minutes late,
because she checked her phone.
And they wouldn't see her.
And you believe that decision cost Ellie-May her life?
Yes, because she did get worse.
So she had to phone the ambulance.
And while the ambulance was on its way, she collapsed.
And that was it, she was gone.
Ellie-May died that night before an ambulance could get
to the Royal Gwent Hospital.
That was two years ago.
Now the health board has carried out a serious concern report
into the actions of Doctor JoAnn role at the Grange clinic
and confirmed Ellie-May had a history of severe asthma
which the doctor was aware of.
The confidential report confirmed that Doctor Rowe refused to see
the child because she was late for the appointment and did not make
any clinical assessment.
What would you like to see happen to the doctor concerned?
I don't know how she should be punished, struck off.
If she just said sorry, at least that would be something.
But Doctor Rowe continues to practice, now in Cardiff.
The General Medical Council investigation resulted in a warning
which will stay on her record for five years.
Your failure to see and assess this child does not meet the standards
required of a doctor.
It risks bringing the profession into disrepute
and must not be repeated.
The Gwent coroner is investigating Ellie-May's death.
An inquest is yet to be held.
The family have fight on and get justice Ellie-May as they say
she will be forever in their thoughts.
Funny little girl, bright.
So funny and loving.
