itsnotoutthere Posted January 31 #1 Share Posted January 31 (edited) An NHS trust has been fined £800,000 in the highest ever penalty for maternity care after admitting to failings in the care of a woman and her baby, who died minutes after being born. Wynter Sophia Andrews died on 15 September 2019, 23 minutes after being born by emergency caesarean section, in the arms of her parents, Sarah and Gary, at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham. Nottingham university hospitals trust pleaded guilty to two counts relating to failures in the care of mother and child – the first time the trust has ever been criminally prosecuted – at a hearing on Wednesday. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2023/jan/27/nhs-trust-fined-800k-after-admitting-failings-death-of-newborn-baby-wynter-sophia-andrews-nottingham No doubt 'lessons have been learnt'. Well, until the next time at least. Bottom line, tax payers fined £800,000 for NHS failure. Edited January 31 by itsnotoutthere Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
