Midlands hospitals pay out £45 million in just 12 months for clinical negligence

CASH-strapped hospitals in the West Midlands spent £45 million in just one year on clinical negligence claims.

The Heart of England NHS Trust, which runs Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull hospitals had the biggest bill in the region – £13.9 million for 2013-14. The Trust also paid more for lawyers than any other group in England – coughing up £1.5 million in legal fees. Payouts include patients of surgeon Ian Paterson, who carried unlicensed and unnecessary operations on hundreds of women at Solihull Hospital.
