Two doctors and two paramedics rejected a mother’s fears that her son had meningitis just hours before he died, an inquest heard on Tuesday Primary school teacher Georgie Hall, 38, said paramedic Graham Scott even rolled his eyes at her and claimed that her six-year-old son Oliver was trying to milk his illness after he was examined at their local GP surgery. She claimed she was also asked if she had used Google to check her son's symptoms and was told by the same paramedic that he spent much of his time dealing with over-anxious mothers.
