Nottingham hospitals: NHS paid out £101m over maternity failings

The NHS paid out tens of millions of pounds over maternity failings at a hospital trust which is the subject of a major inquiry.

Including legal fees, £101m was paid in claims against Nottingham University Hospitals (NUH) between 2006 and 2023.

NUH is facing the UK's largest-ever maternity review, with hundreds of baby deaths and injuries being examined.

Experts say lives could be saved if the trust invested more in learning from its mistakes.

The NHS paid the money in relation to 134 cases over failings at the Queen's Medical Centre (QMC) and City Hospital.

The majority - £85m - was damages for families who were successful in proving their baby's death or injury was a result of medical negligence.
