Baby deaths cluster: Trust paid out millions in compensation

Baby deaths cluster: Trust paid out millions in compensation An NHS trust facing a review into maternity errors has paid out millions in compensation after similar mistakes led to babies born with brain injuries.

The health secretary has ordered a review into the deaths of at least five babies at the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital Trust.

A law firm says it has 27 open cases into claims that mistakes at the trust led to brain injuries at birth.

The trust said the sums already paid out did not reflect current services.

A medical negligence charity says the trust is an "outlier" in terms of avoidable harm and has demanded a full inquiry. BBC News
