Cornwall's biggest hospital says sorry to the family of a cancer patient who died without them during a norovirus outbreak.

Trevor Laws was told he could not visit his wife Janet because of the sickness bug.

She died the next day.

Bosses at Treliske say they have now changed the way they deal with families during outbreaks.

A hospital spokesperson said:

"We would again express our apologies and sincere condolences to Mr Law and his family.

"Following this week’s meeting giving Mr Law and his children an opportunity talk with the clinicians involved in his wife’s care, Mr Law has been invited to work with the Trust as a patient ambassador with the specific aim of making improvements to the care pathway for cancer patients."
