An inquest into the death of Pembrokeshire GP Dr Paul Goodson has concluded that he killed himself with a morphine injection.

Dr Goodson's body was discovered last month in a local beauty spot, Scoveston Woods, Neyland.

Michael Howells, the Pembrokeshire Coroner, found his death was due to ‘self-administered drug poisoning'. But he condemned national media reports suggesting Dr Goodson took his own life because of the death of a patient he had treated out-of-hours the day before.

Mr Howells stressed that the woman in question, Alison Webster, 23, had not been Dr Goodson's registered patient.

Dr Goodson had worked in the county for 15 years and had been key in developing an out-of-hours co-operative.
