Matt Hancock claimed on 15 May to have put a ‘protective ring’ around care homes

The daughter of a man who died in a care home with suspected Covid-19 begins formal proceedings against the health secretary

IT has been reported that Dr Cathy Gardner gave Matt Hancock a pre-action letter at the beginning of the month, calling for him to retract his claim that he provided a ‘protective ring’ around care homes.

The minister had 14 days to respond, but Dr Gardner claims to not have received an adequate reply.

Michael Gibson, (Dr Gardner’s father), died on April 3 in an Oxfordshire care home. His death certificate said ‘Covid probable.’
