An inquest is due to begin next week into the death of a Lowestoft woman who died following treatment at a mental health unit.
Denise Davies, 45, was admitted to the Carlton Court Mental Health Unit, run by the Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust in June 2013 after being referred for observation.
However the mother-of-two died a day after she was transferred from the unit to the James Paget Hospital in Norfolk with concerns over hydration.
The inquest, at Norwich Coroner’s Court, is scheduled to begin on Thursday and last two days.
Mrs Davies family will be represented by Thomas Riis-Bristow, who said: “This has been an extremely difficult time for Denise’s family who lost a loving mother under very difficult circumstances.
