AMBULANCE chiefs have admitted they do not have a vital medical record relating to the death of Dr David Kelly.

South Central Ambulance NHS Trust has no copy of the Patient Report Form completed by paramedic Vanessa Hunt, who attended the scene of the former Government weapons inspector’s death near his home in Southmoor, near Abingdon, in 2003.

The form is considered one of the key documents required at an inquest. It gives medical information including pulse rates, blood pressure and skin condition.

Ambulance spokesman Gill Hodgetts said Oxfordshire Ambulance Service, which preceded SCAS, should have filed it as policy.

She said: “The policy we have now is certainly to keep a copy, and it should have been that policy then. However, we don’t know whether the police’s powers override that.

“In an unusual situation if you’re requested by police to hand over all the documentation that’s probably what you’d do.”

Dr Michael Powers QC has said the absence of the form strengthened the case for his call for an inquest into Dr Kelly’s death.

The Hutton Inquiry into his death concluded he had committed suicide.

Thames Valley Police spokesman Andrea Bennett said yesterday she could not determine if the force had copies of the form.

The reveleation came as one of the paramedics who attended the scene, David Bartlett, said the scientist’s body had been moved.
