      A Nottingham family is still waiting for answers more than a year after the passing of a loving husband, father and grandfather. Sean Durcan, from Bilborough, died on December 31, 2021 from a blocked heart stent, but his family have shared their frustration as they say there are questions as to why more was not done to help the 59-year-old.

      Mr Durcan had seen his GP at Grange Farm Medical Centre, Bilborough on 7th December 2021 after suffering from chest, neck and jaw pain. The father of five had stents placed in his heart in 2015 after suffering a minor heart attack at home and then cardiac arrest in hospital.

      The family said that Mr. Durcan returned home after his appointment in high spirits, informing them that there was no problem with his heart and that he had just had a bit of indigestion and anxiety. However, after his death, the family is asking for answers as to why they did not send Mr. Durcan for an ECG (Electrocardiography), saying his blood pressure and heart rate were not measured.

      Mr. Durcan and his wife, Ann Sedgwick, were married for almost 40 years. Ann said: “As you can imagine, we are deeply saddened by what happened to Sean. He was generally in good health and looking after himself, so any appointment or check-up, Sean would be there.”

      “His stents were never checked and he has broken our family apart because a wonderful father, grandfather and husband have been taken from all of us. Sadly, we will never be the same again.”

      A spokesperson for the practice said: “As healthcare professionals, we pride ourselves on providing the best possible care and advice to patients to ensure their health and well-being. While we cannot comment on individual patient details, we would like to express our deep Condolences to the family involved.
