Hip injury woman in overdose.

A HUDDERSFIELD woman died after a prescribed drug overdose, an inquest heard yesterday.

Dawn Robinson was found dead on September 23 by her carer, Nicola Zaffino, whilst making a routine call to her home in Permain Court, Newsome.

It is not known if Ms Robinson, 55, deliberately took the overdose of the anti-depressant Dosulepin.

The court heard that Ms Robinson, who was unemployed, had been largely confined to a wheelchair after breaking her left hip and subsequent infections in the wound. She had a history of disengaging with health teams and often phoned her doctor instead of visiting the surgery.

Coroner Mary Burke recorded an open verdict, adding that it was impossible to ascertain whether Ms Robinson took her life deliberately or accidently overdosed.
