BOSSES at NHS 24 overhauled their system to give higher priority to children with suspicious rashes just days after meningitis baby Kyle Brown died.
A series of blunders by staff led to delays in the 20-month-old baby receiving vital treatment.
NHS staff were forced into an internal investigation following the baby's death in April 2006.
Yesterday, a fatal accident inquiry heard from Malcolm Alexander, the assistant medical director at NHS 24.
He said that in April 2006, reports of rashes were classed as "triage" and put in a queue to be dealt with by nursing advisors.
After Kyle's death, NHS 24 re-graded rash-like symptoms to ensure they were dealt with quicker by nursing staff.
