The young son of a man who died due to blunders by a private hospital says staff gave him just minutes to say goodbye - as they had already called the undertakers.

Orson Morris was just 12-years-old when father Phil, 48, died after gastric sleeve surgery in December 2021. Staff who called Phil’s wife Dana at 2am to tell her the news gave her just a one-hour window to see him before his body was taken away.

Dana woke Orson before the pair rushed to St Anthony’s Hospital, owned by private health provider Spire. Orson, now 14, who had permission from his mum to speak to the Mirror, said: “I will never forgive them for the way they treated my dad in their care, and ruined my final goodbye with him.“I’ll never get that back and that hurts so much.

Not only did we only get minutes with him instead of hours, but they demanded we go at 2am and see the body or we’d be too late.
