A girl of five died of an asthma attack after being turned away by a GP because she arrived a few minutes late for her appointment.
Ellie-May Clark and her mum Shanice, 25, from Newport , were told to return the next morning by Dr Joanne Rowe, a specialist in safeguarding children.
But the little girl died five hours after Dr Rowe reportedly shouted at a receptionist: “No I’m not seeing her, she’s late”.
The little girl’s family say the doctor should be struck off the GP register.
Dr Rowe, 53, was let off with a warning by the General Medical Council and has moved to another practice where patients are understood to be unaware of the fatal mistake.
