Jacqueline Allwood, 48, had a family history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and went to Beckenham Beacon out-of-hours urgent care centre on January 3 after she had been in pain for a few days. She was referred to Cator Medical Centre, which deals with minor conditions, to see a GP.
Southwark Coroners Court heard how after looking at her legs for a "matter of seconds", Dr Saurabh Adlakha ruled out DVT and diagnosed Ms Allwood with a sprain.
She died ten days later after and a post-mortem examination found the cause of death was a blood clot on the lung which traveled up from a vein in her leg.
