Bradford Hospitals trust paid out more than any other in historic litigation cases

    Bradford Teaching Hospitals Trust has paid out more than any other NHS trust in the UK in the past five years for historic litigation cases.

    The trust has paid out nearly £8.5m between 2012 and 2017 for medical mistakes made before 1995.

    In one case a woman left with irreversible brain damage after a catalogue of errors when she was born at St Luke’s Hospital in 1994 was awarded £5.5m compensation, but it took 18 years for her to finally win her battle for justice in 2012.
