NHS to compensate young boy for brain injury

A young boy who suffered severe personal injuries after his mother was incorrectly given a drug during labour is to be awarded medical negligence compensation.

The boy was born at Doncaster Royal Infirmary in 2007 and during the birth his mother was wrongly given a drug that induced labour. As a result her contractions became too strong and the baby's oxygen supply was cut off.

The child suffered oxygen starvation whilst still in the womb which caused him to be born with cerebral palsy caused by a brain injury.

He now requires around-the-clock care, which he will need for the rest of his life.

The parents of the five-year-old have launched a claim for compensation on their son's behalf against Doncaster and Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation, claiming that mistakes made by hospital staff caused the boy's injuries.

The NHS Trust has admitted liability however it has not yet been revealed how much medical negligence compensation the family will receive.
