A Peak Forest widow said she felt “let down” by the health service after her husband hanged himself, an inquest heard.

At the hearing in Chesterfield last Wednesday, assistant coroner James Anderson ruled that medical staff did not cause or contribute to John Skidmore’s death on March 31.

Patricia Skidmore told the court she felt failed by her late husband’s GPs practice Thornbrook Surgery, in Chapel-en-le-Frith.
