The parents of a tragic Angus infant are hoping for “closure” a year on from his tragic death.
Leylan Kai Fort from Montrose died on April 27 last year after becoming ill over the course of a weekend.
A health board review will investigate the circumstances behind what happened to the four-year-old.
Parents Leanne Smith and Wayne Fort later found out their son died from dehydration, gastroenteritis and norovirus.
But his parents say they rang NHS 24 several times over the weekend before Leylan’s death and were repeatedly told a doctor would not be sent out.
A doctor from their local GP was called out on April 27 and an ambulance was called for.
However, the infant died in the ambulance outside the family’s Garrison Road home.
A Significant Clinical Event Analysis (SCEA) looking into the circumstances of the death is to be held on May 9.
This will analyse the tragic event, which may have implications for patient care.
Leanne and Wayne will have the chance to meet someone from the SCEA team before the review.
Leanne said: “This is good for Leyland. It gives me a bit of hope. This might give me a bit of closure if something comes out of it.”
Leylan was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of two and his parents have been raising money to buy a bench for his favourite park, Seafront Splash at the beach.
This will mark the anniversary of his death.
They held a bingo night in the Picture House bar which raised £435 towards the £1,000 total for a seat and plaque.
Any extra funds raised will be donated to the bereavement charity The Compassionate Friends.
The family previously raised money for the sensory unit at Lochside Primary School, which provided assistance for Leylan along with Armitstead House in Broughty Ferry.
The review will be conducted at Ninewells Hospital by NHS Tayside.
A spokeswoman for the health board said: “As we are currently carrying out a review, it would be inappropriate for us to comment.”
NHS 24 said that a representative had been invited to attend and would be present on May 9.
The body said it had invited Leylan’s family to discuss the case but the offer had not been taken up.
NHS 24’s medical director, Professor George Crooks, previously said: “NHS 24 would like to express sympathy to Leylan’s family for their loss.
“Patient safety is always our first priority and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss any concerns that Leylan’s family may have with NHS 24 directly with them.”
