A leading Yorkshire hospital doctor has been jailed for two years after admitting gross negligence over the death of a mother- of-two – and later trying to cover up his failings.

Lisa Quinn, 37, died after three days of treatment for a kidney infection over a Bank Holiday weekend at Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Leeds Crown Court was told Sudhanshu Garg, 44, breached his duty of care in failing to investigate and recognise the severity of her illness which was life-threatening without emergency treatment.

Robert Smith QC, prosecuting, said Mrs Quinn had been correctly diagnosed with a kidney infection when she was seen in the hospital’s A&E on August 22, 2008.

But she suffered a series of failures in her care for which Garg, as the consultant urologist on call, was ultimately responsible and which led to her death.
