A Filipino man whose wife was killed when she was wrongly injected with anasethetic in her arm is appealing against his deportation.
Mr Cabrera was in England on his wife's visa
Arnel Cabrera came to England when his wife Mayra was given a permit to work at Swindon's Great Western Hospital.
On Tuesday, an inquest ruled she was unlawfully killed using epidural anaesthetic after childbirth in 2004.
When his wife died, Mr Cabrera's status changed and his visa was only extended until the end of February.
But a meeting between Mr Cabrera, Swindon MP Anne Snelgrove and the Home Office on Friday was described as a "success".
Ms Snelgrove said: "We have agreed a way forward, we are working together to achieve our aim of Mr Cabrera staying in this country.
"It won’t be easy but the amount of support shown for Mr Cabrera nationally as well as locally demonstrates that the country is with him.
"I will be working at the House of Commons to make sure no avenue is unexplored to achieve our aim of Mr Cabrera staying in Britain."
The couple's baby son Zac survived and has been cared for in the Philippines over the past few years.
Swindon & Marlborough NHS Trust had previously admitted liability in the case, which involved Bupivacaine toxicity.
The inquest heard that the hospital's drug storage at the time of the death was "chaotic".
