Leeds widow sent home from hospital in nightgown

The family of a widow from Leeds is demanding an apology after she was discharged from hospital in the middle of the night wearing just a nightgown.
Elsie Allanson, 74, was admitted to the city's St James' Hospital last month after suffering a suspected stroke. She was sent home in a taxi in freezing weather at 0200 GMT the next day. Her family had not been informed. Her daughter said the hospital should admit its mistake.
The NHS trust said it would be "inappropriate to comment"...
