A HOSPITAL trust is appealing for relatives or friends of a patient who has died to come forward.
North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust is struggling to find family details of a man called Barry Loughlin, who passed away aged 68.
He is believed to have had connections in Hartlepool despite being born in the Manchester area.
A Trust spokesman said: “The Trust has a deceased patient, Barry Loughlin, who was born February 4, 1946, with no details of family.
“He was believed to have been born in Swinton in the Manchester area and also had links to Hartlepool.
“Anyone who knew him is asked to call the trust’s bereavement service on (01642) 383286.”
