E coli tot's chances 'hit by delay'.
Rose Lindsay did not get to hospital for nearly 12 hours after her GP sent her home.
A fatal accident inquiry at Perth Sheriff Court heard 21-month-old Rose, of Scotlandwell, Fife, had symptoms "suggestive of a series of life-threatening conditions" when Dr Claire Scudder sent her home in October 1998.
She died two days later. Expert witness Alan Dickson said Rose was in septic shock and could have been better after emergency surgery at Dundee's Ninewells Hospital, if she'd been sent right away. The inquiry continues.
