    Over £52 million in compensation paid by Midlands hospitals in 12 months

    By David Brown on June 15, 2014

    Midlands hospitals paid out over £52 million in a 12 month period to cover compensation payments, according to figures released by the NHS Litigation Authority. This figure covers a variety of NHS Trusts in this part of the country. The biggest total pay-outs were issued by the Heart of England NHS Trust. It parted with more than £14.3 million to cover costs owed through successful clinical negligence claims. In contrast the Black Country Partnership NHS Foundation Trust did not pay out anything at all.

    Other trusts in the area paid out five- or six-figure sums depending on individual cases brought against them. For example Birmingham Community Healthcare paid out a total of £19,410 while the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital NHS Foundation Trust paid out £1,095,988. All the compensation payments were covered by the insurance that is taken out by all Trusts to cover such cases.

    Have you been the victim of medical negligence?

    In the vast majority of cases people attend hospitals for in-patient or out-patient treatment and receive excellent quality care. However, there are rare cases where things may have the potential to go wrong. If you believe you have suffered from medical negligence it is imperative that you seek advice from professional injury compensation lawyers, as they have experience that will help in this situation. It is vital to know whether evidence of such negligence exists and whether the situation could reasonably have been prevented. Regardless of whether you attend hospital with a broken bone or a long-term condition that needs regular treatment, you would expect nothing but the highest degree of care.
