Gosport War Memorial Hospital: Inquest Opened to Death of Four

Darcy Middleton

Coroners have begun inquests for the causes of death of Clifford Houghton (71), Darcy Middleton (86), Eva Page (88) and Horace Smith (73). They died between 1994 and 2001. David Wilson’s aunt, Darcy Middleton, died in September 2001 at Petersfield Hospital at the age of 86 after being treated in Gosport in August 2001. A criminal investigation into hundreds of deaths between 1987 and 2001 investigated suspected deaths and opioid use without clinical justification. Coroner Christopher Wilkinson said: Based on the results of Operation Magenta, I am currently adjourned. Participation in today’s opening was “immeasurable,” and he said “there must have been an inquest” when his aunt died.
