A 44-year-old woman was discharged from hospital on two separate occasions in the weeks leading up to her death, an inquest hearing has heard.  

Lisa Rush died at Peterborough City Hospital on October 18, 2022 and an inquest has now been opened into her death.  

During the brief hearing, it emerged that she visited the hospital’s emergency department twice and was discharged on both occasions. 

David Heming, the area coroner for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, explained Ms Rush went back to the emergency department again on October 13 showing signs of confusion. 

Her neurological condition then declined.   

However, Mr Heming said: “She previously presented to the emergency department in Peterborough on September 27 and October 5 and appears she was discharged from both occasions.” 

Tests later suggested she had a primary malignant tumour and conditions related to bleeding to the brain were cited as the provisional cause of her death.

Ms Rush’s inquest was opened at Peterborough Town Hall on May 16, 2024. 

At the hearing, the case was listed for a pre-inquest review hearing to be held before area coroner Caroline Jones on June 26, 2024.  

Mr Heming added: “I express my sincerest and condolences to the family of the deceased for their loss.”
