A GIRL of ten who sought medical help 48 times before dying of asthma was failed by “woeful” NHS treatment, a coroner has ruled.
Sophie Holman repeatedly visited GPs and was seen 18 times in A&E.

Yet each attack was dealt with separately instead of a long-term treatment plan being drawn up.
In December 2017 a GP sent her home with steroids.
The next day her parents were taking her to A&E when she collapsed, the Evening Standard reported.
She was declared dead at Queen’s Hospital in Romford, East London.

Dr Radcliffe blasted: “There were many missed opportunities to optimise and co-ordinate Sophie’s medical management during her 48 attendances and admissions in the [GP] practice and hospitals, particularly in her final year when she had four asthma attacks treated in the practice.”
She added: “This episode demonstrates a profound and woeful indication of the lack of understanding of how this condition should be managed by someone with proper training.”
