Child gets £4.3m payout from Ipswich Hospital NHS Trust

Ipswich Hospital

A boy born brain damaged at Ipswich Hospital has won a £4.3m payout from the NHS.

The six-year-old, who cannot be named, was left “profoundly disabled” by oxygen starvation during his delivery in 2011.

He came into the world in a “severely asphyxiated condition” after complications developed in the final stages of his mum’s labour and was left with cerebral palsy and is profoundly disabled. He needs care and support for the rest of his life.

Ipswich NHS Trust today agreed to a £4.3m settlement of the case, without making any admission of liability.
