Doctor 'failed three times to spot baby's swine flu'

A girl aged 12 months has become one of the youngest people in the country to contract swine flu.

Jessica Davies was diagnosed with the virus only after being taken three times to a GP, say her parents. A hospital doctor spotted that Jessica had the illness and she was prescribed the Tamiflu drug, according to Athol and Lindsay Davies.

‘I would like to warn other parents to keep going back to their doctors if they think their child has swine flu,’ said Mrs Davies, from Hartlepool, ‘If it wasn’t for a doctor at the hospital suggesting Jessica was tested then she wouldn’t have been diagnosed. To me, that is very worrying.’
