The Care Quality Commission is taking action against SaTH in relation to the death of Mohammed Ismael Zaman, known as 'Bolly".

No parties were in attendance at Telford Magistrates Court for the first hearing on Monday and the case was adjourned until March 31.

Mr Zaman, a trainee pharmacist from Telford, was undergoing treatment at the renal unit at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital on October 18, 2019, when his dialysis machine became disconnected.

He died after losing three pints of blood in seven minutes.

The case has three charges listed against the trust, all of a "registered person fail to provide care and treatment in safe way resulting in harm or loss".

The charges come under Regulation 12 of the Health and Social Care Act, intended to avoid patients being exposed to risk of avoidable harm.

Following an inquest in January 2021, Hayley Flavell, director of nursing at SaTH, apologised unreservedly to Mr Zaman's family, and said changes had been made in hospital procedures.
