    A "gang culture" existed at an NHS neurosurgery department, a doctor has claimed at his employment tribunal. Neurosurgeon Mansoor Foroughi is one of two surgeons who alleges patients were put at risk at University Hospitals Sussex, where police are investigating 105 cases of alleged medical negligence. Four whistleblowers at the trust previously told BBC Newsnight that patients had died unnecessarily while others were "effectively maimed". They also complained of a "Mafia-like" management culture. Mansoor Foroughi alleges one colleague was approved to perform complex spinal surgery without adequate training. He claims a second surgeon undertook procedures that led to a "disproportionate" level of deaths. Mr Foroughi says a third surgeon undertook private work whilst on call to the NHS, which if true would be a breach of the NHS Code of Conduct. Universities Hospitals Sussex dismissed Mr Foroughi following a disciplinary hearing which upheld three allegations against him. He alleges the trust punished him because he raised these safety concerns. The trust said it would "vigorously contest" his claims. Read full story Source: BBC News, 11 April 2024

    Families have been told they will have to prove liability for the harm caused to mothers and children at East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust before getting compensation. This is despite the inquiry having examined each case in detail and concluding 45 babies could have survived, while 12 who sustained brain damage could have had a different outcome. It also determined 23 women who either died or suffered injuries might have had better outcomes had care been given to “nationally recognised” standards. However, NHS Resolution – which handles claims for clinical negligence – now says families must prove causation and a breach of duty of care before any compensation can be made. This stipulation has been made even in cases where the inquiry found different treatment would have been reasonably expected to make a difference to the outcome. The investigation into the trust’s maternity care led by Bill Kirkup reported 18 months ago. Speaking to HSJ, its author said: “I am disappointed that East Kent families are facing these problems after everything that has happened to them. Of course, it is true that the independent investigation panel was not in a position to rule on negligence, but we did provide a robust clinical assessment of each case. “I would have hoped that this could be taken into account in deciding to offer early settlement instead of a protracted dispute. It seems sad that a more compassionate approach has not been adopted.” Read full story (paywalled) Source: HSJ, 2 April 2024

    Alice and Lewis Jones were forced to watch their 18-month-old baby die in front of them after a failure by a scandal-hit NHS trust left him with a “catastrophic brain injury” following his birth. Their son Ronnie was one of hundreds of babies who have died following errors by Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital, where the largest NHS maternity scandal to date was previously uncovered by The Independent. Two years later, Mr and Mrs Jones are calling for the Supreme Court to overturn a controversial decision in February which ruled bereaved relatives could not claim compensation over the psychological impact of seeing a loved one die, even if it was caused by medical negligence. It comes after the trust admitted to failings in a letter to the parents’ lawyers. Ronnie’s birth in 2020 fell outside of the Ockenden review and his parents have warned it showed failures were still occurring despite warnings made during the inquiry. Within the Ockenden inquiry, multiple cases of staff failing to recognise and act upon CTG training were found, and the final report recommended all hospitals have systems to ensure staff are trained and up to date in CTG and emergency skills. The report also said the NHS should make CTG training mandatory and that clinicians must not work in labour wards or provide childbirth care without it. A CTG measures a baby’s heart and monitors conditions in the uterus and is an important measure before birth and during labour to observe the baby for any signs of distress. Ms Jones said: “We knew about the Ockenden review, but everything at Telford was new and so I think we just assumed that lessons had been learned, the same thing wouldn’t happen to us.” Ronnie’s parents are campaigning to reverse the Supreme Court which ruled that “secondary victims” – including parents who are not directly harmed by the birth – are not eligible to bring claims for psychiatric injury following medical negligence.

    The Priory healthcare group has been fined more than £650,000 over the death of a 23-year-old patient who was hit by a train after absconding from a mental health hospital. Matthew Caseby, a personal trainer, was able to leave Birmingham’s Priory hospital Woodbourne by scaling a wall after being “inappropriately unattended” for several minutes in September 2020, an inquest jury ruled in 2022. The healthcare company pleaded guilty to a criminal safety failing linked to the death of a patient, breaching the 2008 Health and Social Care Act, at Birmingham magistrates court on Friday. The London-based provider was charged after an investigation into the death of Caseby conducted by the Care Quality Commission. Caseby’s father, Richard Caseby, who had been campaigning for a prosecution of the healthcare organisation, told the court the company attempted to “evade accountability for its gross failures”. In a victim impact statement which he presented as part of the prosecution on Friday, he said: “I found it unbelievable that a private company commissioned by the NHS to care for its most vulnerable psychiatric patients in the greatest crisis of their lives could be so cruel and resort to such desperate tactics to hide the truth.” Read full story Source: The Guardian, 8 March 2024

    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. Read full story Source: BBC News, 28 February 2024

    Legal costs in Irish medical negligence cases are among the highest in the world, according to a report that says the slow pace of legal actions here is damaging patients and doctors’ mental wellbeing. The average cost of a legal claim for medical negligence in Ireland is almost three times higher than in the UK, and cases take over 50 per cent longer to resolve, the industry report says. Patients and doctors in Ireland are dragged through what can be a brutal process, for longer than necessary, with patients having to wait longer to receive compensation, the report by the Medical Protection Society (MPS) asserts. In the report, the society, which provides indemnity cover for 16,000 doctors and other healthcare professionals in Ireland, compared the length and cost of legal actions here with other jurisdictions in which it operates. A medical negligence claim in Ireland takes 1,462 days on average (four years), 14% longer than in South Africa and 56% longer than in Hong Kong, the UK or Singapore, it found. Two hundred doctors in Ireland were interviewed for the report: 88% said they were worried about the length of time the litigation process was taking and 91% were worried about their mental wellbeing while it was ongoing. Some said they needed professional help, experienced suicidal thoughts, or quit medicine as a result of the claim. “It was horrendous. I had to leave medicine after it,” says one doctor involved in a claim who is quoted in the report. “I developed severe anxiety during the course of the claim and PTSD. I lost my career in medicine and I am devastated about that. I knew I could never go through the same again.” Read full story Source: The Irish Times, 31 January 2024

    The trusts paying the highest premiums for clinical negligence as a proportion of their income have been revealed through HSJ analysis of internal data. Several acute trusts in and around London are now spending more than 4% of their income on premium costs to insure themselves against clinical negligence, according to internal NHS data. One expert suggested trusts with higher proportions of ethnic minority patients often have high rates of negligence claims against them, partly due to the complexity of medical presentation, but also communication problems. Lisa Jordan, head of medical negligence at law firm Irwin Mitchell, said trusts that act as tertiary referral centres tend to admit the most complex cases, which are more likely to lead to claims. She added: “Trusts in areas with higher proportions of ethnic minority groups, also often have higher rates. That is in part about the complexity of medical presentation, and also communication problems.” Helen Hughes, chief executive of Patient Safety Learning, said: “Scarce funds that could be spent proactively improving the quality of care are being spent on the costs of error and harm.” Read full story (paywalled) Source: HSJ, 13 December 2023

    The government faces a rebellion with at least 30 Tories backing an amendment to extend interim payouts to more victims of the infected blood scandal. Up to 30,000 people were given contaminated blood products in the 1970s and 80s. Thousands have died. A Labour amendment will be brought on Monday calling for a new body to be set up to administer compensation. More than 100 MPs, including Tories Sir Robert Buckland, Sir Edward Leigh and David Davis, are backing the move. In a letter sent to Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, shadow chancellor Rachel Reeves called the scandal "one of the most appalling tragedies in our country's recent history." She added: "Blood infected with hepatitis C and HIV has stolen life, denied opportunities and harmed livelihoods." She praised Theresa May, who set up the Infected Blood Inquiry when she was prime minister in 2017. But she warned: "For the victims, time matters. It is estimated that every four days someone affected by infected blood dies." The chancellor, himself a former health secretary, told the inquiry in July that the government accepted the moral case for compensation. But he said no final decisions could be made before the inquiry publishes its findings - now expected in March next year. In August 2022, the government agreed to make the first interim compensation payments of £100,000 each to about 4,000 surviving victims and bereaved widows. But inquiry chairman Sir Brian Langstaff, said in April this year that the parents and children of victims should also receive compensation and also called for a full compensation scheme to be set up immediately. The Commons Speaker will decide on Monday which amendments to the bill MPs will vote on. But the government has said it will not be supporting the amendment. A Department of Health spokesperson said: "We are deeply sympathetic to the strength of feeling on this and understand the need for action. However, it would not be right to pre-empt the findings of the final report into infected blood." Read full story Source: BBC News, 3 December 2023

    A woman who suffered traumatic complications from a vaginal mesh implant has been awarded a record settlement of at least £1m from the NHS. Yvette Greenway-Mansfield, 59, was given a mesh implant at Coventry’s University Hospital in 2009 and went on to suffer serious complications. Her medical negligence claim against the hospital trust found that the surgery was carried out prematurely and unnecessarily and that her consent form had been doctored to include additional risks after Greenway-Mansfield had signed it. Greenway-Mansfield said that being awarded the compensation was a “huge relief”, but added that many other women who have suffered similar damage had received little or no compensation, and criticised the government’s failure to establish a financial redress agency for victims. “I’m not the only one. There are thousands of mes,” she said. “There should be a pot of money to provide damages for these women and a care plan in place as an automatic response to mesh-damaged people. It comes down to a perception of women and women’s health problems. We’ve all had enough of it.” Read full story Source: The Guardian, 13 November 2023

    The daughter of a man who took his own life after experiencing years of pain linked to botched dental surgery said she had "lost faith in the system". Clive Worthington, from Harlow, Essex, travelled to Hungary for dental implants in 2008. Several follow-up procedures from the same dentist back in the UK over the next seven years were unsuccessful. The government said it was addressing a so-called loophole which meant the 81-year-old missed out on compensation. Last week, an inquest concluded Mr Worthington's death in 2022 was a suicide. Senior Essex coroner Lincoln Brookes said the "long-term consequences" of Mr Worthington's unsuccessful dental surgery "impacted significantly on his mental health and ability to cope with daily life". In 2017, the General Dental Council (GDC) found Dr Eszter Gömbös, who was employed by Perfect Profiles, at fault for the work. Mr Worthington was awarded £117,378 in damages and legal costs at Chelmsford County Court in November 2019 - one of the highest pay-outs for dental negligence in the UK. But the insurer which covered Dr Gömbös - the Dental Defence Union (DDU) - argued "discretionary indemnity" and refused to pay.

    A private healthcare provider has been ordered to pay more than £1.5m – the largest fine issued for such a case – after pleading guilty in a criminal prosecution brought by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) over the death of a young woman at Cygnet Hospital Ealing in July 2019. It is the highest ever fine issued to a mental health service following a prosecution by the CQC. The firm pleaded guilty to one offence of failing to provide safe care and treatment, acknowledging failures to: provide a safe ward environment to reduce the risk of people being able to use a ligature; ensure staff observed people intermittently in line with the company procedures; and train staff to be able to resuscitate patients in an emergency. The offences related to the case of a young woman who was admitted to a ward in Cygnet Hospital Ealing in November 2018. In July 2019, she took her own life while on the ward. CQC said Cygnet Ealing had been aware the young woman tried to harm herself in an almost identical way four months earlier, but had failed to mitigate the known environmental risk she was exposed to.
