A health worker has been arrested on suspicion of administering poison with intent to endanger life after a child died at Birmingham Children's Hospital.
The 27-year-old woman was arrested on Thursday and has been suspended from her role at the hospital.
The child was being treated in the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit, a spokesperson for the hospital said.
Police said the woman had been released while investigations continued and forensic tests were being examined.
"The staff member involved has been suspended by the Trust following the national process on the sudden unexpected death of a child."
Birmingham Children's Hospital is a leading centre for specialist paediatric care and treats children and young people up to the age of 16.

The arrest was quick following the child's death and "poisoning" is quite specific..it sounds as if someone witnessed something.
BCH is my local specialist paediatric Centre. They treat some of the most ill children from across the country
