A family from Norfolk is seeking people who worked at St Michael’s Hospital in Aylsham 40 years ago to support an injury compensation claim related to asbestos.
Betty Farrow, who died from mesothelioma in June 2008, worked as an auxiliary nurse at the hospital from 1967 until 1970, the Norwich Evening News reports.
Her family is trying to track down her former workmates, who may be able to provide evidence that she was exposed to asbestos while working at the hospital in case an injury compensation claim can be made.
"No amount of money can ever bring my mother back to us, but we want to get to the bottom of where she was exposed to asbestos," Mrs Farrow’s daughter Sue Empson told the paper.
"Without witnesses this will be almost impossible."
It follows news that a number of British insurers have challenged a decision which gives the victims of asbestos-related conditions in Scotland the right to pursue injury compensation.
