Hospital bosses have apologised to the relatives of a young man

Hospital bosses have apologised to the relatives of a young man after medics missed a chance to treat a heart condition that killed him.

Dean Gillespie, from Cheadle Heath, was just 24 when he collapsed and died from a ruptured aorta in September 2014.

His parents, Mark and Sue say it wasn’t until they had access to his medical records they realised he had been living with an untreated heart condition for more than two years.

They say that the narrowing of the aorta had been detected when Dean was scanned for an abdomen wound at Stepping Hill Hospital in 2012.
