    Negligent maternity care in the NHS has cost taxpayers an “eye-watering” £8.2bn over the past 15 years, The Independent reveals.

New data, obtained by The Independent from NHS Resolution, which handles clinical negligence costs for the service, reveals that total payments made following settled cases and legal costs rose from £271m in 2006-07 to an estimated £920m in 2020-21.

    Detectives are examining a series of baby deaths at a troubled NHS trust as the number of cases being investigated by an independent inquiry nears 200 – making it one of the worst maternity scandals in NHS history. The Independent has learned officers in the serious crime directorate at Kent Police are looking at unsafe maternity care at the East Kent Hospitals University Trust and have held a series of high-level meetings, including with the Crown Prosecution Service.

    More than 2,500 women who were victims of the PIP breast implant scandal should receive compensation, a French appeal court has decided. It also upheld an earlier judgement finding German company TUV Rheinland, which awarded safety certificates for the faulty implants, negligent. The case in Paris involved 540 British women, who said they suffered long-term health effects. The results could have far-reaching implications for other victims. Jan Spivey is one of the women in the case. She was given PIP implants after she had a mastectomy due to breast cancer. She develop

    NHS hospitals have been forced to pay millions of pounds to regulators after wrongly claiming their maternity units were among the safest in the country. Seven NHS trusts, including some now at the centre of major care scandals, will have to pay back a total of £8.5m after self-assessments of their maternity services were found to be false. Families whose babies died as a result of avoidable errors at some of the hospitals told The Independent it was further evidence of poor governance and management failings.

    NHS Payouts linked to medication blunders have doubled in six years, fuelling record spending, official figures show. The NHS figures show that in 2019/20, the health service spent £24.3 million on negligence claims relating to medication errors - up from £12.8 million in 2013/14.

Previous research has suggested that medication errors may be killing up to 22,000 patients in England every year. Errors occur when patients are given the wrong drugs, doses which are too h

    Yesterday marked the second World Patient Safety Day, and this year’s theme shined a light on health worker safety – those on the frontline of the pandemic have been selfless in their sacrifices to care for an ailing global population. What has become ever clearer is that a health system is nothing without those who work within it and that we must prioritise the safety and wellbeing of health workers, because without safe health workers we cannot have safe patients. Improving maternity safety has been a priority for some time – although rare, when things go wrong the consequences are unth

    Mistakes by Great Ormond Street contributed to the death of a five-year-old boy, the children’s hospital has admitted – just months after it concluded a legal case with his family in which it denied responsibility. The world-renowned children’s hospital failed to flag results of a crucial blood test, showing that Walif Yafi had a dangerous infection, to doctors at King’s College Hospital where he had been receiving treatment. He died a few weeks later, in September 2017. In September this year, Walif’s parents agreed an out-of-court settlement with Great Ormond Street, which admitted

    Questions healthcare leaders should consider as they work to innovate, design, and implement action toward improvement: How are you resourcing your organization to learn from failure? How do you ensure learning happens and is applied widely from the board room to the frontline? How are you partnering within your organisation and the broader healthcare community to empower in-house leaders to achieve improvements? How are you engaging decision-makers to commit to sustained improvement? How do you demonstrate your responsibility and accountability to engage with fro

    Key messages Spending on clinical negligence is escalating, constituting a major threat to the sustainability of the NHS. In England, payments for negligence awards are resourced from the same funds used to provide care. Improvements in quality and patient safety might help to reduce litigation costs but need to be evidence based. Solving the crisis in litigation costs will require a system-wide effort, with engagement and coordination of stakeholders across the health system.

    I’ve just been listening to the 10 o’clock news tonight and it has been covering the report into Paterson, the breast surgeon who may have needlessly operated on thousands on women. One of the recommendations is that patient safety should be a ‘top priority’ across the NHS (again!!). Another interesting recommendation is that the NHS (and private healthcare providers) need to be better at sharing information about medical staff. Currently, medical staff seem to be able to be investigated in one hospital, and then move to another without any of their history following them. Maybe we n
