A man dies after leaving the ER

Should’ve at least done a set of cardiac enzymes. In the US, he would have been admitted for sure:

Mr Wade left hospital at 5.05pm but because of traffic and a detour to drop off another patient, it was 5.50pm by the time he got home. Miss Wade said by then he was quite breathless. He had some food but his condition deteriorated and an ambulance was called. Mr Wade was dead by the time the paramedics arrived.

Dr Moynadin Shaikh was on duty in accident and emergency when Mr Wade was brought in. He said tests showed his blood gases were fine and an ECG was also fine.
