GP tells dying man he has the flu

A Sydney doctor told a computer analyst suffering from heart disease he must have the flu the day before he died, an inquest has heard.

Deputy State coroner Teresa O'Sullivan is investigating the death of 29-year-old Samuel Seeto, on December 6, 2015, at his Forestville home.

Counsel assisting the coroner, Tracey Stevens, told the Glebe Coroners Court on Thursday Mr Seeto died the day after a consultation with Dr Bhikhubhai Patel at the Chatswood Medical and Dental Centre. - AAP
