MP raises case of UK holidaymaker who died in Greece

On 26 May 2010, Labour MP Kevan Jones led a debate on the case of Christopher Rochester, who died in Greece in 2000 after falling from a 40ft ledge on the island of Rhodes.

In 2008 a hospital doctor was found guilty of manslaughter by neglect, and sentenced to 15 months, suspended for three years.

Two other doctors were cleared at the Greek court.

The 24 year old from Chester-le-Street died after being left unattended for three hours on a hospital trolley.

Following his death, the coroner said he had "great concern about the standard of medical care".

Kevan Jones, the family's MP, has campaigned for many years to highlight medical standards on Rhodes.
