A Suffolk grandfather died after taking medication prescribed for someone else, an inquest heard.
RAF veteran Douglas Lamond suffered from a number of health problems including heart issues and glaucoma and died at Ipswich Hospital on May 12, 2012.
The 86-year-old had boxes of medication delivered to his home in Felixstowe on a weekly basis from the Boots pharmacy in Orwell Road.
An inquest into his death at Suffolk coroner’s court heard how Mr Lamond had a dossette box of medication delivered to him two days earlier.
More than 30 tablets were inside but most were sent in error – and were actually meant to be for Anthony Lampard.
