a background check may have helped the police officers and medical staff involved to come to a better decision about the medical attention she received and how she was dealt with

According to the report in BBC News background checks were not carried out on psychotic killer, Nicola Edgington. Edgington was sentenced to life imprisonment for attempted murder and murder at the Old Bailey on Monday 4th March 2013 by Judge Brian Barker QC (case number T20117412). Despite calling emergency services four times before she committed the murder asking for help as she was hearing voices again and that she was going to kill someone she was able to walk free of the hospitals she was taken to.

The report goes on to say that a Police National Computer check (PNC) would have shown that she already had a manslaughter conviction. Without this information the police and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where Edgingtom was admitted, were in the dark about her past. If they were aware of her history it would have changed the way she was dealt with.
