Families tell of shock over Dr Lyons inquiry

Posted Mon 13th April 2015 at 14:01

Grieving families of two of the four Eagle Medical Practice patients whose deaths are now being investigated by police, say they are baffled as to why their loved ones have become involved.

Yvonne Deegan, wife of Bernie, who died in hospital after an on-going battle with cancer, said the investigation had come as "a shock". She spoke out on her unwavering support for the GP at the centre of the inquiry, Dr Rory Lyons.

Arthur Wheeler, husband of Ann, another of the four patients involved, said he was baffled as to how Health and Social Services Department could have concluded that his wife's death was "of concern" - as was their failure to notify families of the investigation before the day of the raid.

The raid on the surgery was carried out after HSSD received a complaint - from who it is not yet clear - about the treatment of an Eagle Medical Practice patient who died while under Dr Lyons' care earlier this year.

HSSD officials looked into the matter and identified three further deaths they deemed "of concern" that had happened over the past 18 months - mostly patients who had died suddenly or shortly after entering hospital. In recent weeks the investigation was passed onto the police to launch a criminal enquiry into the matter, and at 10.30am on April 2nd Guernsey police officers entered the Eagle Medical Practice and came away with medical records of the four patients involved.
