NHS ... paid out a total of £2.4billion
NEARLY 750 people have been paid damages of £1million or more because of NHS blunders in 15 years, The Sun can reveal.

The bill for the 748 payouts totals £2.4billion, according to figures released under Freedom of Information. Some 420 cases involved mistakes made during childbirth - with 371 babies left with cerebral palsy.

The biggest payment overall was £12.4million given to 34-year-old dancer Kerstin Parkin, left brain damaged and wheelchair-bound after a heart attack while in labour with her first child.



NHS payouts ... over last 15 years
A resuscitation team could not get into her ward at Farnborough Hospital, Kent, because they did not know the security code.

Actress Leslie Ash, 51, was awarded £5million from Chelsea and Westminster Trust after being partly paralysed from contracting an MRSA-style bug in hospital.

Payouts through the Clinical Negligence Scheme for NHS Trusts since it was set up in 1996 also include compensation for 23 needless leg amputations.

Other bungles left patients paralysed, blinded or suffering psychological damage.

Patient Concern campaigner Joyce Robins said: "Some of the highest awards are for damaged babies who may need a lifetime of care.

"Yet instead of recruiting more senior staff to ensure the safety of women and their babies, the Government chooses to go on wasting millions in costly litigation."
