Millions paid out for clinical negligence in Essex

The NHS has paid out millions of pounds in injury compensation claims on behalf of Essex hospitals in the past five years, it has been revealed.

Compensation claims relating to clinical negligence at Southend Hospital between 2006 and 2007 totalled more than GBP 6 million, while between 2005 and 2006 the authority paid out GBP 4.3 million for Basildon Hospital, the Echo reports.

James Duddridge, Conservative MP for Rochford and Southend East, said the law is an "expensive business and needs to be paid for".

"I’d like to see more money going to the individual who has suffered injury," he told the paper.

"Some cases are very useful as a check and balance on what otherwise is a technical inward-looking profession – the medical industry."

The news follows reports that a heart patient in Wales who was made to wait almost two years for a life-saving operation has been awarded compensation for the delay.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19279537-ADNFCR
