A great-grandmother was stunned when she received a letter from the hospital informing her that she was pregnant.

A great-grandmother was stunned when she received a letter from the hospital informing her that she was pregnant.

Doris Ayling, from Bognor Regis, West Sussex, received a letter from the local hospital that asked her to bring a urine sample to an antenatal appointment. What was more bizarre was the fact that they had her birth date correct.
'I haven’t been pregnant for 70 years'

“I’m almost 100 so how can I be expecting?” she told the Sun.

“I have three children and 20 grandchildren - but I haven’t been pregnant for 70 years,” she said, laughing off the incident.

Her 76-year-old son Brian also had a good laugh.

“It’s very amusing. She’s got enjoyment out of it and everyone had a good laugh. It’s just one of those things,” he said.

Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust has since apologised to Doris and her family.

A spokesperson said, "It was a rare administrative error and we have apologised for any unnecessary anxiety this error may have caused.”
